The Breedlove Discovery S Concertina Edgeburst CE Red Cedar-African Mahogany
Sometimes undersung in the guitar world, western red cedar has a glowing warmth that responds quickly to fingerstyle play while offering a rosy definition to relaxed strumming. It finds a perfect duet partner in the clarity and cutting power of African mahogany. In a short-scale 12-fret parlor-like Concertina format, red cedar, simply put, is a folkie’s dream. Boasting a beguiling gloss Edgeburst finish, this solid top soft cutaway Breedlove Discovery S Concertina features sustainable earth-conscious, sonically superior EcoTonewood technology. Comfortable and easy to play, with a slim, fast neck and beginner-friendly narrow nut width, the guitar comes equipped with Fishman Presys I electronics, with built-in tuner. Discover the Breedlove ECO Collection—where the guitar meets the forest.
Sustainable & Clear Cut Free
Made from sustainably-sourced exotic and native tonewoods. No clear-cut trees are used in these instruments. Breedlove uses salvaged and individually harvested timber and has deep relationships with responsible suppliers around the globe. As we move towards sustainability across all lines, owner Tom Bedell has visited 15 countries to discover exactly where the wood comes from, how it is selected and harvested, and how this affects the wildlife, the community, the forest and the planet.
