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. The Australian Blackwood back and sides is both visually stunning and perfectly balanced.
