After reviewing over 600 guitars in my profession, these 7 dreadnoughts are a few of the best guitars I’ve ever played. In this video, I’ll go over each of these guitars and why they stuck out after playing numerous other extraordinary guitars.

Since my guitarsenal, or guitar collection, is so big, I have actually narrowed down this list to simply my dreadnought guitars. You’ll be hearing about my dobros and small-body guitars later this year!

In addition to finding out about my guitarsenal, you’ll get an opportunity to see a Heartbreaker of the Month: the guitar that @Heartbreaker Guitarsin Las Vegas has actually selected for us to showcase! Likewise, you’ll get some suggestions from @Jeremy Sheppard, a guitar hunter who is here to help you find the guitar that works for you! Lastly, I’ll include @Dogwood Tales, an acoustic duo from Virginia.

Alright, without more ado, let’s dive into my list of the 7 dreadnoughts I purchased after examining hundreds of other awesome guitars!

# 1: Santa Cruz Guitar Business Vintage Southerner

This is the most various of all the dreadnoughts in my collection due to the fact that it’s a much shorter scale. For that very reason, I tend to favor the Santa Cruz Vintage Southerner for fingerpicking. Lightly developed with a spruce leading and mahogany back and sides, this guitar truly is a great accompaniment instrument.

# 2: Bourgeois Nation Kid Dreadnought.

This particular Bourgeois Nation Young boy is an absolute bluegrass cannon. If you desire a guitar that can stick out in the mix when your flatpicking through fill after fill, this is your guitar. But, this guitar isn’t simply a basic Bourgeois Country Young boy. This guitar was initially owned by Courtney Hartman and used when she was in the band @Della Mae.

# 3: Martin D-41 Unique

Indian Rosewood back and sides … Sitka spruce top … I indicate, this guitar is a classic combination of class and power that I can’t get enough of. In addition, the forward-shifted bracing helps this guitar really open up and resonate at another level. But here’s the enjoyable part: this guitar was owned by my father after I offered it to him while I was operating at the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago.

# 4: Taylor 717 Grand Pacific Builders Edition

@Taylor Guitars has actually developed some unbelievable guitars, and I’ve been lucky enough to have them send me this model for review. After I examined this guitar, I understood I required to add it to my guitarsenal because of its amazing laser-like forecast. The V-class bracing and the torrefied Sitka spruce leading absolutely help give this guitar a memorable sound.

# 5: Taylor 517 Grand Pacific Builders Edition

This Taylor was actually sent together with the 717 I pointed out formerly. As I kept this specific guitar around the studio for the evaluation, I started playing it a growing number of. I was mesmerized by the mahogany back and sides that set this guitar apart from the 717 and any other guitar in my guitarsenal– and I liked the visual appearance of a sunburst guitar!

# 6: Thompson DCMA

With an Adirondack spruce leading, Cuban mahogany back and sides, this guitar really, genuinely, sings. After talking about Thompson Guitars with a few various buddies of mine, I chose that I NEEDED to have one of these guitars. This guitar has tons of horsepower and clearness.

# 7: Martin HD-35

The last dreadnought in my guitarsenal, this guitar feels like a trusty old companion. This was the very first “real” guitar I ever acquired. This guitar has been with me because I had my very first gig, and I genuinely enjoy it for its warm, woody tone.
