My most popular and versatile body shape. My mid-sized modified dread falls between a standard dreadnought and OM/000. Whilst the dread is traditionally considered a flatpicker’s guitar, and the OM/000 is catered more towards fingerstyle players, my modified dread is designed to deliver on both fronts, with it’s slightly wider lower bout and pinched waist producing a very responsive, clear, well-balanced guitar. It really does deliver on both strumming and fingerpicking styles.
