This is my take on the all time classic steel string guitar: The Dreadnought.
This guitar has a big voice and is the perfect option for singer songwriters who are looking for an instrument to accompany their voice without competing with it.
It has very full, warm bass that will fill up a lot of space, but then slightly scooped middles that allow the voice to sit on top of it in a mix and yet still provides clear, defined trembles to complete a full spectrum of sound.
For those that want a big bodied guitar as a stand alone instrument this is still a great option.
It has a slightly tighter waist that the traditional dreadnought which brings out a warm mid range giving an even, balanced sound for finger picking or flat pickers who play melodically.
This guitar is based on the classic Orchestra Model but with a few defining design features. It has a wider lower bout than is typically associated with an OM but maintains the tight waist and narrow upper bout.
It has a 13 fret body joint putting the bridge in what I consider to be the sweet spot on the soundboard.
This guitar is tonal very balanced with plenty of mids for cutting through the mix in an ensemble environment while having clear bass and sparkly trebles that give it an articulate, full sound in a solo setting.
The body shape is ergonomically very comfortable making it the first guitar to reach out for when writing music or simply doodling on the sofa.
