The AAD400CE features a a grand dreadnought cutaway body which is slightly larger than your average dreadnought which adds greater richness, a more robust low end, and a more volume to an already bold and powerful shape. Whether you're strumming or fingerpicking the dreadnought shape will respond well to your playing. The back and sides of the body are made from solid African mahogany which provides a warm tone with low and midrage emphasis that works well the power of the dreadnought body shape. The top is made from solid Sitka spruce, a reliable and consistent tonewood that offers a balanced tone. The neck is a five piece mahogany and pau ferro construction which helps improve durability and is topped with an ebony fingerboard for a smooth, natural feel. The neck also features Luminlay side dots which glow in the dark so you can always see where you are on the neck.
