    Tonewood pairing delivers rich tonal complexity

The mahogany ensures you'll experience a clear, organic sound when playing this guitar, while the spruce enhances the exquisite sound with warmth and beautiful overtones.

    Classic dreadnought body style

    The rich tone and loud volume of the DSS-17 come partly from its ever-popular dreadnought body style. This body style provides excellent projection and focus, perfect for pairing with a banjo other instruments in an ensemble. The dreadnought body style also gives you well-balanced tone, making the DSS-17 an excellent choice for recording in the studio.
