The dreadnought is a type of acoustic guitar body that has become the most common size and shape for acoustic guitars.
At the time of its creation in 1916 the word dreadnought referred to a large, all big-gun, modern battleship of the type pioneered by HMS Dreadnought in 1906. With a body much larger than most other guitars at the time, it provided the dreadnought with a bolder, richer, and often louder tone. It is distinguished by its size and square shoulders and bottom.
It has stood the test of time with its rich tone and versatility to become the most recognisable steel string acoustic guitar body shape in the world.
