In certain knowing circles, all mahogany guitars are revered for their embracing, warm sound, rich in midrange tones that ride alongside a voice rather than simply creating a scooped valley for it to sit in. Punchy and distinctive, many songwriters and folk heroes favor such single species guitars for their authoritative, clean tone.
Visually, however, mahogany usually has one thing going for it—brown.
For 2020, Breedlove is putting a brilliant spin on its great sounding, affordable, responsive all mahogany Discovery models. Filling the open pores of the exotic tonewood creates a new kind of palette—something more than just brown. Enlivened by a staining process that produces striking results, these instruments are bold, beautiful and extraordinary.
Behold the Night Sky, beware the Black Widow!

McKinley chose Breedlove Discovery series guitars as one of her Staff Picks - here's what she has to say about them:
"I've never really cared that much about guitar brands. Whenever my musician friends started ranting and raving about a specific model or manufacturer, my eyes would usually glaze over until someone changed the subject because comparing guitars felt a lot like listening to sommeliers talk about the subtle differences between wines. However, I have finally found my conviction in vouching for the Breedlove Discovery series—more specifically, the Concert and the Companion acoustic-electric models. They're affordable, but they sound far more rich and colorful than anything you'd expect out of an "affordable" guitar. And even though style is subjective, these guitars have a certain kind of moxie that a lot of acoustic guitars don't seem to muster. Plus, anyone who buys one of these Breedloves will be supporting an Oregon-based company while also getting a guitar that is built to last for musicians who appreciate character and quality over brand names and expensive price tags."
