Dreadnought Guitars are a type of acoustic guitar body produced by American business C.F Martin & Company in response to demand for louder, richer tones from listeners who favoured them over the more gentle sound produced by classical guitars with more petite bodies like those found on Jazz instruments or Acoustic Singers.
