Cutaway Dreadnought

  • Deep low end with driving rhythms
  • Good for: strumming and picking

The most recognised guitar shape – and regarded as the all-rounder because it offers a good balance of bottom end with highs, allowing it to cover a lot of ground for players who need adaptability.

The classic Dreadnought shape produces a robust voice with low-end power, a snappy midrange, and strong, clear treble notes. The guitar will appeal to flat pickers and lovers of traditional guitar shapes and tones. The cutaway gives access to the higher frets, similar to an electric guitar which makes it ideal for rhythm and lead alike. Perfect for the electric player who needs some acoustic tones.

Perhaps more than any other shape, the Dreadnought remains linked with roots music like bluegrass and folk, in part because of its traditional role in defining those sounds. Pickers and strummers with an aggressive attack will love our Dreadnought’s blend of power and articulation, which allows for clear lead lines and crisp, driving rhythms.
