Taylor 110e Dreadnought Steel String Guitar, Natural

Taylor 110e Dreadnought Steel String Guitar, Natural

The Taylor 110e dreadnought guitar features a solid Sitka spruce top which is paired with a layered Walnut sides and back. The body size produces lots of volume and punchy midrange with clear trebles from the spruce top. The very stable maple neck has a slightly narrower 1 11/16” nut width and a satin finish which makes for a very comfortable playing experience. If more volume is needed the Taylor 110e is equipped with the Taylor ES pickup system.

Martin D12 20 12 String Guitar Natural, 1968

Martin D12 20 12 String Guitar Natural, 1968

The Martin D12 20 was a slope shouldered, 12-fret 12 string guitar built from 1964 to 1991 with a Sitka Spruce top and Mahogany for the sides, back and neck. Here we’re looking at a Martin D12 20 dating to February of 1968 and built at the Martin plant in Nazareth, Pennsylvania. As a ’20’ model, it is very close to an ’18’ and the key differentiating component is the ‘zipper’ back strip. The top is Sitka Spruce – Adirondack Spruce had been overharvested during WW2 and it would still be decades for recovery. The sides, back, and slotted-headstock neck are Honduran Mahogany and, by the time this post-1967 guitar was built, Indian Rosewood was used for the head plate, bridge and unbound fingerboard.

Eastman PCH1 D Dreadnought Steel String Guitar Classic Finish

Eastman PCH1 D Dreadnought Steel String Guitar Classic Finish

The PCH1 D model from Eastman guitars is an excellent choice for players looking for great sounding guitar at an affordable price. One of the main features on this model is the solid Sitka spruce top. The top or sound board is one of the main components in tone production on an acoustic guitar. While laminate tops have more durability they are stiff and don’t vibrate well. The solid top vibrates with the energy of the strings and produces tone.

Huss & Dalton TDR Custom Sitka Top Dreadnought

Huss & Dalton TDR Custom Sitka Top Dreadnought

The Huss & Dalton TDR is, as the name breaks down, a Traditional Dreadnought design with Rosewood for the sides, back, and head plate. The Dreadnought design first appeared during 1916, built by C F Martin for the Oliver Ditson company. The design was not popular at the time but when Martin re-introduced it in 1931, times had changed. These models went on to great success and are now one of the handful of standard guitar body shapes, built by almost everyone and played by countless guitarists.

Eastman E10D Mahogany Dreadnought

Eastman E10D Mahogany Dreadnought

The Eastman E10D follows a traditional dreadnought design featuring an Adirondack spruce top paired with mahogany fir the sides, back and neck. Based on the classic square shoulder dreadnoughts introduced to the mass market in the early 1930s and still the basis of many guitar lines, the Eastman E10D gets pretty much everything right. The Adirondack Spruce top produces a full, rich tone that holds up well when played hard, as might frequently happen in a bluegrass context. There’s plenty of bottom, shimmering top end and everything in between.
