A perfect combination of body woods for strong, rhythmic playing styles.
The heralded Dreadnought guitar is the most traditional of all acoustics. By definition, it’s a battleship of a guitar and the Taylor DN Series pays tribute to that legacy—and then some. The Sapele/Sitka Dreadnought 6-String's booming bass and articulate mids dare you to dig in and challenge your flatpicking prowess. Signature Taylor performance, quality, and value make our sapele/spruce acoustic guitars a great introduction to the solid-wood Taylor experience. Simple, traditional styling and renowned Taylor craftsmanship make this combination one of their most popular models.
The warm tone and open midrange of sapele balances the bright and snappy characteristics of a Sitka spruce top. The resulting combination provides the perfect guitar for strong, rhythmic playing styles.
The Taylor Dreadnought is a focused guitar with plenty of presence, recently redesigned to be even more assertive. It’s the traditional choice for the traditional player; the model to drive with a heavy pick.
Gloss Top/Satin Back & Sides
The finish used to create this guitar's textured satin back and sides and lustrous gloss top was developed at Taylor for maximum durability and resistance to cold-checking. This ultraviolet-cured finish is also more environmentally friendly than traditional lacquer finishes.
