The square-shouldered 14-fret dreadnought is the most popular steel-string acoustic guitar body shape in the world. While Collings is certainly not the only company to build them, they bring a new tonal clarity to the depth and warmth usually associated with such a large, deep-bodied guitar. Although its bass response makes the dreadnought ideal for vocal accompaniment, Collings versions are also often employed by bluegrass flatpickers who must compete with inherently louder instruments such as banjos and fiddles. 

German Spruce as a Tonewood

German Spruce as a tonewood features exceptional stiffness together with low density and creates a great guitar sound. The sound properties are well balanced between pure notes and gives power to harmonics and dynamics.
