The Bedell Heritage HGD 18G Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar showcases a solid Sitka spruce top, which is one of the most popular woods for guitar tops today. Sitka spruce produces an even, clear response from low to high tones. Known to improve with age, a Sitka top guitar should make a great companion for your musical journey. The Bedell Heritage HGD 18G Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar has an African sapele back and side. This works well for a dreadnought guitar with a sitka top to generate a balanced tone with lots of texture.
