About Dreadnought Guitars

The dreadnought is what you think of when you think of acoustic guitars. Designed by Martin & Co in 1917, it hasn’t really changed since then.

Dreadnought guitars sound like a canon: they are powerful, commanding guitars. They can be made with any wood, but the key ingredients are the shape, the deep body and the long 25.5” scale length. The most famous dreadnought models are the D-28 from Martin and the Hummingbird from Gibson. There is also a variant size called the slope-shoulder dreadnought which has a curvier shape, short scale length, and a slightly softer sound. The most famous slope-shoulder dreadnought is the Gibson J-45.

While you can fingerpick happily on a dreadnought guitar, they come alive when strumming with a pick. Because of this, they have become the archetypical songwriters guitar.

Why should I choose a dreadnought guitar?

  • Powerful, commanding sound
  • Perfect for songwriters
  • Iconic design
  • Frequently Asked Questions about Dreadnought Guitars

    Question: What is the standard acoustic guitar size?
    Twenty years ago, the dreadnought was the only size a beginner could get. Nowadays, there is a lot more choice available to beginners, but dreadnoughts are still a very popular size.
    Question: What is the difference between dreadnought and folk size guitars?
    Dreadnought guitars are bigger and more suited to strumming with a pick. Folk size guitars are smaller and more suited to fingerpicking.
    Question: Is a dreadnought guitar too big for me?
    Dreadnought guitars are not for everyone. While you don’t notice the size of guitars when using a strap to stand while playing, it’s noticeable when sitting down.
