Myrtlewood, while native to Oregon's Pacific coast, might just be the most 'exotic' of all tonewoods, capturing the deep bass of rosewood, the pure warmth of mahogany, and the sweet, glassy treble of maple in one exquisite, visually enchanting package - here under an equally captivating tortoise-bound Tiger's Eye gloss finish. This sustainable acoustic electric Pursuit Exotic S Concertina has all the charm of a vintage short-scale 12-fret parlor guitar, but with a full, punchy modern tone and maximum playing comfort. A fast, slim neck and soft cutaway allow access to every fret to let your fingers, and your heart, have their say. Sound better than every with Breedlove's Earth-conscious, sonically superior EcoTonewood technology. Get fierce with a Tiger's Eye!

Case sold separately
The guitar was sent to the refurbishing center from Breedlove because either the factory put the wrong size neck on it or they miss placed the bridge on the body. As shown in the pictures it measures 12 1/2 inches from nut to 12th fret and 11 1/4 inches from saddle to the 12 fret. This results in intonation issues. You can probably get away with playing cowboy cords in the open position but as you make your way up the neck the guitars tuning becomes unstable. Otherwise it's in like new mint condition.
