The Ardent is the largest acoustic body shape that we offer. Based off the legendary dreadnought body shape that was created in 1916, this design offers a bold tone that matches well with any singing voice. The bracing is tuned to offer maximum response when playing light, and the attitude to yell back at you when you're digging in hard! These guitars have an amazing tonal richness and volume to fill any space. This body type has been a mainstay of the music industry for over 100 years, and with good reason! Available in 6 & 12 string models. All models come standard with a Venetian cutaway, but can also be built as a non-cutaway model.
