Invented by a historic guitar company in 1916, the Dreadnought body shape is probably the most iconic/familiar acoustic guitar shape, and has come to be the preference for players who have more traditional tastes. With a larger, boxier shape, you get a full-figured sound with loud projection, making the model name certainly appropriate. This Bunya top is strong, with longer wood fibers. The result is a guitar that is loud and crisp, with excellent projection, and the maple back and sides contributes to the overall crispness and dynamic power of this guitar. If you want your acoustic to be a cannon, this is it.
