In 1931, Martin Guitars introduced what would be arguably the most popular steel string guitar model since it's introduction: the 14-fret Dreadnought(the original Dreadnought was a 12-fret guitar originally made in 1916 in collaboration with the Oliver Ditson Company).
Traditionally it's known for its thunderous bass and in all genres of music, especially bluegrass music. Its sound is also popular with singer/songwriters because of its availability and its sound.
The Sharp Traditional Dreadnought is the perfect guitar for strumming and flatpicking. What sets apart the Sharp Traditional Dreadnought from other Dreadnoughts is the unique "Sharp Guitars" voicing, which provides great balance and responsiveness throughout the fretboard.
