Classical guitarists have long been drawn to western red cedar, knowing it responds beautifully to the press of skin on nylon strings, releasing cascades of tone to every touch.
Whether an experienced player, or just beginning your guitar journey, the Discovery S Concert Nylon CE—made with Breedlove’s new earth-conscious, sonically superior EcoTonewood technology—will help you unleash your soul.
A light gauge flatpick, wielded with grace on nylon strings, can reveal unexpected pleasures as well! Appointments, in addition to convenient, accurate Fishman Presys I electronics, include a natural satin finish, slotted Asymmetrical headstock and sleek, easy-playing African mahogany neck with soft cutaway access to every expressive fret.
Discover the Breedlove ECO Collection—where the guitar meets the forest.
ECOTONEWOOD BACK & SIDES
With EcoTonewood, Breedlove makes laminate technology sustainable, introducing a resonant core tonewood layer of clear-cut free, individually harvested African mahogany in place of the typical tone-robbing softwoods used in standard acoustic guitar manufacture. Coupled with Breedlove’s deep research into revolutionary body shapes; building to target tonewood weight adds to the optimized, natural sound of each guitar in the ECO Collection. And, Breedlove creates these better sounding laminate guitars while being kind to the earth while maintaining an accessible, entry-level price-point.
Breedlove EcoTonewood—it’s where music meets the trees.
SOLID WOOD TOPS
Along with its body shape, a guitar’s top is the defining element of its sound, driving, through its vibration, the key aspects of volume, tone, sustain and projection. Spruce will, due in part to its famous stiffness-to-weight ratio, ring loud and clear. A solid wood top translates those vibrations with more immediacy and purity of tone, and reacts more directly with the intent of a player. If you are at an intermediate level or above, you will appreciate the instantly recognizable benefits of a solid wood top.
