D – Dreadnought
The dreadnought is nowadays the most common body style
and what most people think of as a steel-stringed guitar.
The dreadnought, as the name suggests,
is a big instrument with a big sound.
It became the workhorse of singer-song-writers from the 1970s onward,
popular for many styles of playing.
The slim 1 & 11/16th neck on this guitar,
combined with its large body and bass response,
make it attractive to strummers and bluegrass players.
Depending on the model, they may be set up with light or medium strings.
