A powerful acoustic with consistently great tone and great looks.

The Taylor 2012 DN8 Rosewood/Spruce Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar is traditional, and by dreadnought definition, it' a battleship of a guitar. Constructed of tropical mahogany back and sides, topped with sitka spruce, the DN8 is a modern classic, giving you plenty of low-end growl and high-end sizzle.

Dreadnought (DN)
Taylor evolved the DN8 in a way that honors the dreadnought' enduring sonic heritage yet also refines 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 is more evenly balanced across the entire tonal spectrum. Pickers and strummers with an aggressive attack will love the blend of power and articulation of the DN8e, which allows for clear lead lines and crisp, driving rhythms.

Indian Rosewood
A strong midrange that' deeper in the low end and brighter on the top end than mahogany. Versatile and consistent, you can fingerpick it, strum it and flatpick it. Payers can rely on it to deliver.
