The AD is one of our Dreadnought series. It has the same dimensions as the A series but with the traditional shallow Dreadnought waist. The shape of this model would tend to be regarded as a dropped shoulder Dread. The great bass response, which is matched by clear trebles, makes it a great guitar for any genré.
We also make a small body Dread called an ASD and we will even make you an AJD super jumbo dreadnought. All are available in all the wood combinations we produce.
