Dreadnought ShapeThe most famous acoustic guitar body shape, the Dreadnought dates back over 100 years and is loved for its bold and rich tone, large size and its loud volume.

LR Baggs VTCThe guitar is equipped with an LR Baggs VTC pickup system, which offers an accurate and transparent capture of the guitar’s tone. The controls for the pickup are hidden inside the edge of the soundhole, meaning that there are no unsightly control panels on the body of the guitar. It has the appearance of a traditional acoustic guitar, with all of the benefits of a modern electro-acoustic, truly the best of both worlds.
