      Taylor Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar (109168047)
Availability:  


A large-bodied flatop with an Engelmann top and fine details.

The heralded dxreadnought is the most traditional of all acoustics. By definition, it’s a battleship of a guitar, and the models in Taylor's non-cutaway DN Series pay tribute to that legacy — while also refining that potent sound. The 700 Sereis Taylor Dreadnought’s robust bass and articulate mids blend power and balance and dare you to dig in and challenge your flatpicking prowess. The DN7 pairs rosewood with an Engelmann top for a deep, rich tone.

Dreadnought (DN)
Body Width: 16" / Body Depth: 4 5/8" / Body Length: 20"
The potent tone flatpickers and strummers love.
The most traditional of guitar shapes, Bob Taylor has evolved the Taylor Dreadnought over time to honor its enduring sonic heritage yet also refine the look and sound into a more modern package. The Taylor Dreadnought still boasts that powerful dreadnought tone that old school pickers expect, with deep lows and crisp highs, but with a voice that, like every Taylor, is more evenly balanced across the entire tonal spectrum. Perhaps more than any other shape, the Dreadnought remains linked with roots music like bluegrass and folk, in part because of its traditional role in defining those sounds. Pickers and strummers with an aggressive attack will love our Dreadnought’s blend of power and articulation, which allows for clear lead lines and crisp, driving rhythms.

Indian Rosewood
Origin: East India
One of the most popular and traditional guitar woods of all time, rosewood takes the basic sonic thumbprint of mahogany (which has a strong midrange) and expands it in both directions. Rosewood sounds deeper in the low end and brighter on the top end (one might describe the treble notes as zesty, sparkly or sizzly, with more articulation). If you look at its frequency range visually, rosewood would appear to be more scooped in the middle, yielding less midrange bloom than mahogany. Like mahogany, rosewood’s vintage heritage has helped firmly establish its acoustic legacy. It’s a great sound in part because we know that sound. In some music circles in which preserving the traditional sound helps bring a sense of authenticity to the music — certain strains of Americana, for example — rosewood has an iconic status. Also like mahogany, rosewood is a versatile tonewood, which has contributed to its popularity. One can fingerpick it, strum it and flatpick it. It’s very consistent, so players can usually rely on it to deliver.

Goes well with: Most applications. If you like a guitar with fuller low end and brighter treble (bluegrassers, for instance), rosewood will do the trick. Its high-end sizzle and clear articulation will benefit players with “dark hands”. If you’re looking for a traditional acoustic sound, a rosewood dreadnought or Grand Auditorium is right up your alley.

  • Simply the Best!

    As reviewed by TERRANCE WINKLER on 3/8/2014

    I was ready to go to the next level in my acoustic guitar journey. A new guitar center opened just a mile from where I worked. After 2 weeks in The acoustic room everyday on my lunch break , I finally Settled on This piece of tone heaven! I tried Martin's , Gibson's , PRS,Breedlove just to name a few. I figured out I'm a Taylor player. The next step was for me to figure what combo of tone woods suited my ear. From the first strum of the DN7 it was like angels singing! Just perfect ! And as my guitar ages over time I know she will open up even more! Many thanks to the fine staff at the guitar center in Cheektowaga , NY. And especially to Zack and Brandon for the help and patience ! Try one of these, if your looking for great bite and sustain in your playing this just might be the guitar for you!

  • Acoustic tone Heaven!!

    As reviewed by TERRANCE WINKLER on 3/11/2014

    I originally started playing guitar about five years ago and purchased a Taylor 214 CE. As my playing has evolved I always wanted to get top quality guitar. After many months of procrastination they opened a new guitar center by where I work. I started going there on my lunch breaks they are one hour, it gave me time to sit in the acoustic room and try many different guitars. I started looking at the Gibson songwriter then the Martin D 28, I also tried the high end fenders and seagulls. Then I tried to DN 7 , it appealed to me because of its rich full sound, I didn't require electronics in the guitar so that's saved me about $500. From the very first trauma big open G I knew this was Guitar for me!! Riched well-balanced tone clear articulate Bass and the nice-sounding midrange. This is a quality instrument, buy one you will not regret it!

  • The best sound

    As reviewed by John Lacombe on 1/2/2014

    After buying an Epiphone Masterbuilt in 2007 from Guitar Center (a great guitar) I was ready for a step up the ladder. So after doing tons of research on line, I started my quest to find my next acoustic guitar.After several trips to Guitar Center starting with the Martin D28 and the Gibson J45, and many others, then coming back again and trying the Martin D18,and D35 and many others.The first trip, one of the other guitars I tried was a Taylor DN7 and I kept coming back to this guitar over and over again ,The sound and the quality was just so much better than any of the other guitars. The sound was clear, strong defined, did not matter if you where picking or strumming, and it was a better price than many I had tried.Casey my salesman Made it affordable, and I took it home.This is a must guitar to try,you wont be sorry. I am very pleased and happy with my purchase, and thanks again to Casey and Guitar Center.
