ECO Collection Where the guitar meets the forest
Two values drive Breedlove—protecting our world’s forests and maximizing acoustic guitar sound. Breedlove’s ECO Collection addresses both. In a visionary feat of engineering, Breedlove has developed a process to integrate three layers of tonewood—sustainably harvested from forests visited by Breedlove owner Tom Bedell—avoiding the soft center core that dampens sound on other laminates. The ECO Collection is ushering in a new era in six-string history. With the Breedlove ECO Collection, for the first time, you can play an environmentally friendly, solid top guitar with vibrant, renewable, sound enhancing EcoTonewood back and sides. New Breedlove Designed in Bend Discovery S, Pursuit Exotic S and all-African mahogany Rainforest S models will feature this fully sustainable integrated tonewood technology. Now, great, affordable, natural sound can be good to the earth, too.
With EcoTonewood, Breedlove makes laminate technology sustainable, introducing a resonant core tonewood layer of clear-cut free, individually harvested African mahogany in place of the typical tone-robbing softwoods used in standard acoustic guitar manufacture. Coupled with Breedlove’s deep research into revolutionary body shapes; building to target tonewood weight adds to the optimized, natural sound of each guitar in the ECO Collection. And, Breedlove creates these better sounding laminate guitars while being kind to the earth while maintaining an accessible, entry-level price-point.
ECO COLLECTION DISCOVERY S SERIES Beginner-friendly design makes the Discovery S Series—part of Breedlove’s sustainable new ECO Collection—a perfect introduction to the world of music.

FEATURES 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.
