Dreadnought Guitar

Traditionally designed to be loud, this guitar, with a deep, wide lower body and awesome bass presence, is perhaps the world’s most popular style of steel string guitar.

The carefully constructed Maingard Dreadnought Guitar, however, has a unique tapered bracing pattern, voiced to enhance mid-range and treble without compromising the bass.

This voicing gives the Dreadnought Guitar Model a more even balance than traditionally braced, bass-heavy, Dreadnought Guitars.

To increase its versatility and for a more customized sound, scalloping of braces is recommended. Please consult the studio about this.

All guitars are available in Brazilian Rosewood, African Blackwood, Cocobolo, Pink Ivory & other. Please email me to discuss the tonal  implications of the different woods for backs & sides as well as availability.

All tops are preferably over 20 years old hand selected over many years Alpine or European spruce.
