The perfect companion-sized model with red cedar top, mahogany back and sides and L.R. Baggs EAS electronics.

The Breedlove Pursuit Companion CE is Breedlove’s small travel-ready acoustic-electric guitar. It’s got a warm and rich sound that emanates from the solid red cedar top and mahogany back and sides. The smaller Companion body shape was engineered for a light play style with clean and powerful projection from a small body guitar that’s a joy to hold and play. This Breedlove acoustic-electric is ideal for the player looking for a more nuanced wound with more tonal complexity, and comfortable playing experience. Featuring the reliable and superior-sounding L.R. Baggs EAS electronic system, it can also be plugged in for amplification. Players find they sound better, play better and play more on a Breedlove Pursuit Series acoustic-electric guitar. Solid Tonewood TopThe Breedlove Pursuit Companion Cutaway CE acoustic-electric guitar features a solid top, which is the defining element of its sound. Through its vibration, the solid top drives the key aspects of the guitar's volume, tone, sustain and projection. The solid wood top translates the 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 this solid wood top.Companion Body ShapeHistorically, serious players on the move have faced a dilemma: contend with the challenges of carrying a full-size instrument or settle for the less than thrilling sound of a travel guitar. With the Breedlove Pursuit Companion Cutaway CE model, players won’t face that dilemma anymore. Red Cedar TopSofter than spruce, with a warmer cast to its look and its tone, Western red cedar has less headroom for a heavy attack, but comes alive—with sweet harmonics and a wide tonal palette—for a lighter touch. Related to mahogany, it shares a focused sound, much loved by fingerstylists.Mahogany Back & SidesLong treasured by cabinetmakers and shipwrights for its simple, straight-grained beauty, strength and workability, mahogany—used in tops, backs, sides and necks—is also one of the true classic tonewoods. Famous for its clear, strong fundamental; even string-to-string balance; and warm midrange emphasis, the mahogany back and sides of the Breedlove Pursuit Companion pairs well with the spruce top. The sound produced by this combination has defined much of American roots music.Breedlove Pinless Delta BridgeBreedlove’s pinless Delta bridge is a distinctive element, with a sleek, modern contour that adds an extra bit of unexpected beauty to every instrument. But it also adds welcome functionality while anchoring great sound. Beginners love the fact that string changes are much easier without having to wrestle a traditional pin bridge, and professional players love it for the same reason. You'll no longer have to search for lost pins during a fast backstage string swap. And its low profile makes for perfect right hand damping.The Breedlove NeckBreedlove guitar necks feature a slimmer neck profile, which enables comfortable play, even with smaller hands. Unlike traditional dovetail neck joints that require major surgery for a neck re-set, it is easy to adjust the play action and neck angle with the Breedlove bolt-on neck and single-action truss rod. The hand-rubbed, semi-gloss Breedlove neck finish contributes to ideal playability. The finish process alone takes three days, including precise finish coat applications, fine sanding, and hand buffing and rubbing.About the Breedlove Pursuit SeriesWith the Pursuit Series, Breedlove wanted to offer players as many options as possible, all in affordable reach, with great-sounding solid wood tops, L.R.
