A classic dreadnought with a dynamic and textured tone.
The Hagstrom Elfdalia Dreadnought acoustic guitar is constructed of a solid cedar top with mahogany back and sides. It provides a very lively tone as the cedar top brings out the upper-mid range and has a tendency to be harmonically active. Dreadnoughts have been a favorite shape of many guitar players since the mid-20th century and produce a distinctive tone. Cedar is a great material to help express the instrument’s overtones. Being a darker wood than spruce, the wood grain within the cedar top is often much tighter than spruce. This tighter grain allows the top of the instrument to vibrate more, providing a more responsive tone. Cedar works very well for both flat pickers and finger style technique.
With the Elfdalia Dreadnought, the icing on the cake is the gold hardware, which will catch the attention of the player and the audience. The look of the instrument properly matches the instruments responsive tone.
