Dreadnought Body Size

Taylor’s Dreadnought captures the potent tone flatpickers and strummers love.

Body Width: 16" / Body Depth: 4 5/8" / Body Length: 20"

  • Designed for a hard picking attack
  • Deep low end with driving rhythms
  • Maintains overall tonal balance keeping the low end from getting "muddy"

The most traditional of guitar shapes, Bob Taylor has evolved the Taylor Dreadnought over time to honor its enduring sonic heritage yet also refine the look and sound into a more modern package.

The Taylor Dreadnought still boasts that powerful dreadnought tone that old school pickers expect, with deep lows and crisp highs, but with a voice that, like every Taylor, is more evenly balanced across the entire tonal spectrum.

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 the Dreadnought’s blend of power and articulation, which allows for clear lead lines and crisp, driving rhythms.

Taylor’s refined take on the classic Dreadnought shape produces a robust voice with low-end power, a snappy midrange, and strong, clear treble notes, retaining the essence of the balanced Taylor sound. The guitar will appeal to flatpickers and lovers of traditional guitar shapes and tones.

A traditional shape for flatpickers, refined for the modern era.
