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.
