Mahogany Dreadnought Comparison | Taylor, Martin & Gibson


The sound of a Mahogany back and sides paired with a Spruce top dreadnought acoustic is one of the most iconic sounds in music. The three "big boys" of acoustic guitars; Taylor, Gibson and Martin, all have their offerings that can help fill your need for a Mahogany dreadnought. 

While the Martin D-18 and Gibson J-45 are classics and have been around for years and have been recorded on countless albums, Taylor's Grand Pacific 517 is a new kid on the block.  

The rundown of each guitar is below, and it is definitely worth watching our comparison video above to really hear the differences.
