Not your Granddaddies dreadnought. This new take on a slope shouldered dread will blow your socks off. Round chamfered edges on the body make it feel surprisingly compact, while the mahogany and spruce combination provides a rich warm color pallet. V-Class bracing opens up the entire fretboard for enhanced sustain and volume.
