Das sagt Dana: Our most popular model, the square shoulder pre-War style Dreadnought delivers ample power to cut through any performance situation. Featuring Dana's unique, single-scalloped X brace system, our Dreadnought has become a bluegrass classic, offering a blend of balance and clarity absolutely required for flatpicking, highly desirable for most other styles of playing, but rarely found in a contemporary dreadnought.

Aged Tone Tops

The process used to cure our Adirondack tops is a highly controlled, low-temperature variation of the basic commercial treatment. During processing, water, sugars, and resins are cooked off, leaving behind cellulose and lignum–the “glue” that binds cellulosic fibers together. Once processed, mass and weight are reduced, absolute stiffness is increased and internal damping is decreased; stiffness-to-weight ratio and Velocity of Sound (the rate at which vibration transmits through solid material) are dramatically increased.


Diese Dread ist komplett in "Aged Tone" ausgeführt - also nicht nur die Decke, sondern auch das Bracing und das Mahagoni für Boden und Zarge. Außerdem wurde "Animal Glue" - verwendet. In der Summe ergibt sich eine Dread, die sehr nahe an die "Alten" rankommt - Dana Bourgeois ist ein Meister im Umgang mit "Zutaten".
