Price: $3,398 US MSRP / Series: Acoustic 8

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 blend power and balance and dare you to dig in and challenge your flatpicking prowess. The DN8 is a modern classic, giving you plenty of low-end growl and high-end sizzle.

This model has been discontinued.
