The Concertina, Concert, and Concerto are the latest additions to the Pursuit series.

Bend, OR (June 5, 2019) -- New for 2019, Breedlove has unveiled three new additions to the popular Pursuit Series in each of our revolutionary body shapes; The Concertina, the Concert and the Concerto. Each model is crafted with stunning myrtlewood from the Oregon coast and finished with the new Prairie Burst finish. These acoustic-electric guitars deliver the amazing tonal balance of myrtlewood, which has a unique voice blending the best of East Indian rosewood and maple with distinct and clear bass, mids and highs. These guitars are alive with a distinct and attractive sound many touring musicians, studio engineers, and session players crave. They come standard with LR Baggs EAS electronics, which are highly reliable and sound fantastic. With the addition of an ebony fretboard, the two cutaway models (the versatile Concert body and large body Concerto) allow for easy access to the entire fretboard. The smaller body Concertina was engineered for a light play style with clean and powerful projection from a small body guitar that is a joy to hold and play. With a 12-fret to body design, this guitar is ideal for the player looking for a more nuanced sound with more tonal complexity, and comfortable playing experience. These are the ideal guitars 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.

A blind horse wouldn’t be impressed, but this beautiful, double-horned instrument with one-of-a-kind engravings helped make luthier Tony Zemaitis famous.

Though they never reached the commercial success of some of their peers, the Faces have no doubt earned a place as one of the seminal rock ’n’ roll bands of the late ’60s and early ’70s. Combining influences as varied as instrumental funk à la the Meters, traditional folk music, and a heavy dose of rhythm and blues, the Faces brand of rock ’n’ roll can be heard in some way or another in the music of countless bands that followed. After the Faces folded in 1975, all five members went on to continue making great music, but their chemistry together was undeniable.

Oh no—it finally happened! Now the big question: How long before my verve for guitar recovers from Covid?

This past Sunday I awoke to a very un-Sunday sensation. Hovering on the edge of consciousness, as yet still incapable of contemplating what Sunday mornings are for (lounging in bed till coffee’s made and lunch plans are set, of course!), I was suddenly struck by a godawful stench. As one does, I wrinkled up my nose, lifted my head to look around in disgust, and took a couple more sniffs to see if … I don’t know—maybe I’d dreamt it? Or woke up incontinent? Then I tasted the putrescence. Then … nothing.

Fuuuuuuuck.
