The dreadnought 6-string guitar was one of the most significant innovation of the Martin Guitar Co. This guitar is the standard and legendary for it's incredible balance, projection and robust tone. Although this guitar model is most closely associated with bluegrass and folk styles, the bold sound and projection is suitable for any genre.
This guitar plan is the 3/4 size of our standard Dreadnought. This guitar is perfect as a child's guitar while still producing a big Dreadnought sound. The reduced scale of 22.75" allows shorter fingers to easily reach otherwise difficult chords.
