It is common knowledge that dreadnought shaped guitars deliver a wide array of tones to work with, at the price of additional "carriage" due to its size. What's different in the GD51 is that it delivers tonal variety of equal proportions, yet in a compactly designed case. This makes it a winner in my eyes. The instrument's body is a combination of a spruce top and rosewood back and sides, in charge of its robust-y tones. The slim profile mahogany neck along with its 20 fret-equipped rosewood fingerboard ensuring smooth playability.
