This is the original 12-fret dreadnought shape, first designed as an over-sized Hawaiian guitar almost a century ago. They've retained the shape and wide neck with slotted headstock from that bygone era, but the DS models are thoroughly modern guitars with a unique sound all their own. The longer body, with the bridge closer to the center of the lower bout, delivers an open, airy tone with smoothness and warmth not typically found in modern, 14-fret dreadnoughts. Whether flat-picked or played fingerstyle, these guitars have lots of headroom and the wide dynamic range invites everything from mellow accompaniment to biting leads.
