An Adirondack Spruce top provides the ideal stiffness to weight ratio yielding you even more projection and sustain. Animal Protein Glue is used to adhere our very best selection of tone woods together, giving your guitar an extra kick of tonal perfection. Mahogany back and sides tie it all together with signature rich woody tone.

Over the last eighty years, the Dreadnought became firmly established as the world’s most popular acoustic guitar. It’s easy to see why. Its deep body, wide upper and lower bouts, and large air cavity combine to set the standard for exceptional projection and low end presence.
Decades ago Dana noticed that during the first few years of a large guitar’s life, guitar tops “relax” until stretched to their limit. Later in the guitars life, the top will “harden” as a result of permanent distortion. During relaxation, bass is boosted and high frequency response dies off. This often is beyond desirable limits and balance is not restored for years. In the 1990’s, Dana modified the traditional Dreadnought bracing system. Bourgeois began scalloping only the bass side of the X brace and lightening it’s tone bars. The result successfully counteracted a Dreadnought’s tendency to “unbalance”, and over the years has attracted scores of Dreadnought players. Among the ranks are Bryan Sutton, Josh Williams, Andy Falco, Courtney Hartman and many others.
