OVERVIEW

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 Series 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 œdark hands. If you'e looking for a traditional acoustic sound, a rosewood dreadnought or Grand Auditorium is right up your alley.

Comments about Taylor Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

My search for an acoustic upgrade took me on a long road.
I had owned a taylor 214ce that I got 5 years ago when I first took up guitar.
I decided it was time as my playing skills continue to evolve to upgrade.
I played. martins,Gibsons,Seagulls, Fenders, and yamaha's just to name a few.
Tried every type of body shape and size still felt unfulfilled in my quest. Until......
On my lunch break I went to the new local guitar center down the road.
In their acoustic room a Taylor DN7 hung on the wall, from the very first strum it was like acoustic heaven!
Full rich tone with a punch ! I called Taylor they informed me they make this model
Exclusively for GC/ MF.
Get one you'll love it!
