The Turner Dreadnought is amongst the most popular guitar body shapes in our range. An iconic and instantly recognisable body shape offering deep bass and full mids together with clear highs, a Turner Dreadnought will sit perfectly under vocals or in a band.
Featured here is the Turner 80 CE, pairing a clear and articulate solid spruce top with a beautiful solid rosewood back and sides. Rosewood offers staggeringly defined depth of tone and beautiful ringing treble, with just a hint of middle cut. This combination of tonewoods sounds exquisite and is perfect for most playing styles whether it be fingerpicking or strumming. Rosewood never fails to deliver a signature tone that has been highly prized throughout acoustic guitar history! If you appreciate a clear and full “traditional” guitar tone that will project your playing superbly then rosewood will reward your investment for years to come.
The Turner 80 Series is stylishly decorated and offers a host of high spec features, with offset snowflake fingerboard inlays on a bound ebony fingerboard, ornate decorative body binding, beautiful abalone inlays around the soundhole and classy gold tuning pegs with black heads. There’s also an upgraded Fishman Presys+ system with a microphone blend in addition to the under saddle pick-up providing accurate acoustic tonal reproduction – either in a studio or playing live. There’s even a handy built in tuner! The venetian cutaway allows easy access to the upper frets.
