Taylor Acoustic Guitars: DN8 Dreadnought

by Guitar Guru

”Impress the Strumming Circle”

The deeply rich tone of the Taylor DN8 Dreadnought is hard to beat, and its sustain will absolutely amaze you. Its sound just goes on, and on, and on. Created with an Indian rosewood body and solid Sitka spruce top, the DN8 is particularly well-adapted to picking and heavy strumming and can stand up to anything you want to throw at it (musically speaking).

The classic dreadnought style of the DN8’s body not only contributes to its tone, but with the deeper body, it produces a tight bass response that is truly amazing and which makes this instrument a flatpicker’s dream. But the clarity of all the ranges and the sustain of the instrument ensure that strumming with this beauty is a true joy.

While the DN8 may not have the fancy window dressings, e.g. inlays, of the guitars comparable to this in sound, truly discriminating musicians are more interested in the quality of tone that a guitar produces and will at once be able to peg this beauty as a Taylor just by listening to it. You’ll be thankful that Taylor focused on quality rather than aesthetic features with this model.

After all, Taylor makes some of the best acoustic guitars for sale, and is known not just for its quality but for its reasonable prices. The DN8 is no exception. At just $2,099 (including a Taylor deluxe hardshell case) its sound and quality can easily be compared to other guitars that cost double the price.
