Price: $2,998 US MSRP / Series: Acoustic 5

The heralded Dreadnought is the most traditional of all acoustics. By definition, it’s a battleship of a guitar, and the models in our non-cutaway DN Series pay tribute to that legacy — while also refining that potent sound. Our Dreadnought’s robust bass and articulate mids dare you to dig in and challenge your flatpicking prowess. If you’re a mahogany-loving picker, you’ll want to take the DN5 for a spin.

This model has been discontinued.
