Taylor Dreadnought Body Shape

Taylor Acoustic Guitar Buyer's Guide: Dreadnought

The Dreadnought design is perhaps the most recognizable and traditional design in the acoustic guitar market. Taylor's take on the dreadnought body delivers a vintage warm tone but still has the balance and bite that Taylor is so well-known for. The Dreadnought body shape has a loud and full sound with heaps of harmonically rich overtones, yet has a very clear articulation that will cut thorough any dense mix.

The Dreadnought body shape is perfectly suited for flatpickers, strummers, and anyone who is looking for a traditional acoustic guitar that is anything but ordinary. If the model number ends with a 0, it's a Dreadnought. For example: 810.
