Hand Made Dreadnaught Acoustic Guitars

The large body design of these custom dreadnaught guitars delivers everything one would expect from a proven design. The meticulous attention to the acoustic voicing that only a skilled Luthier can provide gives this instrument a preferred "vintage sound". A very popular model, the dreadnaught projects a full sound with lots of bass response and cutting highs.

This basic dreadnaught guitar design can be modified to fit the needs of most guitar players. Bob works closely with each customer to determine wood choices, voicing methods, and many other variables that can produce a very different feel and tonal quality.
