Breedlove ECO Discovery S Concert CE Acoustic-electric Bass Guitar – Edgeburst European Spruce/African Mahogany

4-string Acoustic-electric Bass with Spruce Top, Mahogany Back and Sides, Mahogany Neck, and Ovangkol Fingerboard – Edgeburst

A Superb, Eco-conscious Tone Slinger

Outfitted with thunderous spirit, the Breedlove ECO Discovery S Concert CE steals the show with superb tonewoods, eco-conscious construction, and powerful plugged-in tone. The beautiful grain of these Breedlove tonewoods are one thing but give those 4 strings a slap and you’ll find rich resonance with exceptional articulation through each note – that’s solid European spruce and African mahogany. Breedlove also armed the ECO Discovery S Concert CE with Fishman Presys I electronics for gigging and band practice. This bass features sustainably harvested tonewoods to sweeten the deal — something that’s all but impossible to find on other basses in this price range. The ECO Discovery S Concert CE takes Breedlove’s decades of experimentation and expertise to the next level.

Compelling tonewoods encourage you to play your best

Guitarists and bassists alike gravitate to African mahogany to experience the detailed, warm midrange. By contrast, Sitka spruce’s springy attack and sizeable dynamic range provide a treble zing and an excellent projection. The Breedlove ECO Discovery S Concert CE’s body consists of a solid spruce top, mahogany EcoTonewood back and sides. Whether you use a plectrum or prefer a more fingers-on approach, these tonewoods will respond with vigor and bright response.

Creating the next generation of acoustic basses

Building a sustainably sourced yet budget-friendly acoustic bass isn’t without its unique challenges. However, Breedlove has risen to the occasion in a way that few else could. In fact, the designers at Breedlove have changed the very fabric of modern acoustic basses with their revolutionary EcoTonewood backs and sides. EcoTonewood isn’t some synthetic material to replace tonewoods; it’s exactly the opposite. It’s a laminate material featuring two stunning outer tonewood plies with a center ply of African mahogany for added resonance that few other laminate guitars can match.

Most of today’s bass manufacturers use a 3-ply laminate or layer system for their more affordable models. The structure most often has two tonewood outer plies laminated over with an inexpensive softwood core. While this construction method cuts costs and delivers a solid acoustic bass to the customer, a softwood core can stifle extra resonance and lessen the overall tonality. That’s where Breedlove’s EcoTonewood is different. By using African mahogany as the inner ply, the guitar can live up to its true potential with a vibrant, full-bodied tone.

Eco-conscious construction

For years, Breedlove has worked tirelessly to lessen its environmental impact. Now, we are proud to announce that Breedlove has achieved complete sustainability. Starting in 2021, every Breedlove instrument is constructed entirely from environmentally friendly tonewoods. Stunningly figured myrtlewood, luxurious curly maple, resonant African mahogany, heirloom-quality koa, smooth-as-glass ebony, and more are on offer — and all of them individually harvested in cooperation with local communities and suppliers. From the introductory Discovery Series to the bespoke, handcrafted Masterclass Series, every guitar and bass bearing the Breedlove name ushers in a new era of environmental responsibility and look good doing it.

Breedlove: guitars you can feel good about

From the company’s beginning in 1990, Breedlove has focused a lot of their efforts on offsetting their impact on the planet without compromising the quality of their instruments. Their radical approach to sustainability led Breedlove to create their Tonewood Certification Program and commit to visiting the locations where their timber is harvested to ensure that their sustainability standards are met. The company has introduced player-centered innovations, including top-loading bridges, fine-tuned voicings, and unique neck profiles. From the Discovery to the Legacy, each and every Breedlove is made with an uncompromising dedication to quality sound, flawless workmanship, and complete environmental sustainability. Buying a Breedlove is much more than purchasing a top-notch acoustic guitar — it’s buying a guitar that you can feel good about.
