The Pursuit Exotic Concert CE Sitka Spruce – Ziricote was designed as a versatile acoustic-electric guitar with very balanced richness between the bass, mids, and highs. Grown in southern Mexico, the beauty of ziricote tonewood pairs well with the responsiveness of Sitka spruce. Visually, ziricote is subtly stunning with a rich chocolate color scape accented by a variety of figures and distinct patterns. It comes standard with LR Baggs EAS electronics which are highly reliable and sound fantastic. With the addition of an ebony fretboard, this cutaway Concert body allows for easy access to the entire fretboard. This is an ideal guitar for everyone from the touring musician to the beginner, and everyone in-between. You will sound better, play better and play more on a Breedlove Pursuit Exotic Series acoustic-electric guitar.
The world’s most popular topwood, for a reason. Sitka has an ideal strength-to-weight ratio, yielding a strong fundamental, high velocity of sound and a pleasing elasticity. Translation? Sitka sounds great for heavy strumming, light fingerpicking and everything in between.
Favored by classical, baroque and flamenco players, ziricote’s allure comes from its rich, booming bass response, matched only by its luminous treble. Often compared visually to Brazilian rosewood, but with inky black lines and darker, ghostlike grey tones, ziricote also boasts a natural reverb that surrounds both player and audience.
