A 12th fret Dreadnought really works for many players – some say it’s because of the position of the bridge being right in the middle of the soundboard, or the closer position of your fretting hand or just the overall feel and string tension. Whatever it is, it certainly works. The MDR70ESB a really lovely round and full tone with lots of clear bass frequencies and glistening trebles. Its response is instant, and its notes are clear and robust. When strumming, the solid sitka spruce top and solid rosewood back & sides help deliver clarity and separation, and balance is clearly audible across all six strings.
