The Brunswick BD200SB model is a Sunburst topped, clear lacquered Dreadnought Acoustic guitar in the traditional style with squared shoulders and bottom. The name 'Dreadnought' comes from the early 20th century warships, epitomised by 'HMS Dreadnought'. The name was coined because this new guitar shape was big and powerful, delivering much more impact than the smaller bodied instruments more common at that time.
The dreadnought body shape has proven extremely popular for the last century, and has become the 'industry standard' guitar shape across the world. It has been so popular simply because its dimensions and design allow the instrument to project the sound very effectively, being able to deliver a loud, clear tone and be heard as part of a band or ensemble.
The sunburst finish on the top of this guitar is a truly classic look, on a truly classic shape. A favourite for decades, sunburst guitars usually have a very dark brown edge which graduates into a warm amber/yellow tone, with the natural grain of the Spruce evident beneath.
