The Dreadnought is the most traditional guitar shape. This shape has a lot of bass response and a full sound which makes it a favorite among flat-pickers and singer-songwriters as the full-sounding rich tone supports the voice very well.
The Grand Auditorium Cutaway is an extremely versatile shape that creates the ultimate all-purpose acoustic guitar. This shape allows easy access to higher frets, and is designed for both fingerstyle and bold strumming.
