David Taylor's first Modified Dreadnought, and he knocks it out of the park! The body size first popularized by Ervin Somogyi fits naturally in Taylor's voicing style--the setup is slinky and fast, but the larger body cavity keeps projection, sustain, and bass response at an optimal balance. Like to play in DADGAD or more exotic tunings? This DT Mod D handles handsomely.
We found that flatpicks, fingertips, and even thumbpicks felt natural and easy on the strings, and Taylor's balanced voicing allowed us to acentuate different registers as needed without the other strings falling quiet. The Schertler tuners have the sort of smoothness that is the envy of most other open-geared tuners, and the Florentine Cutaway and ornate bridge lend an air of elegance to this Honduran-Rosewood-and-Sitka-Spruce beauty.

"The bass response blooms very sweetly with a softer attack. I found that arrangements which allowed open strings to ring were a perfect fit for the clear tone of the trebles." - Paul Heumiller
"This is the first Mod D design I've played by David Taylor and I'm impressed. The overall feel is kind of like playing a Dreadnought, but with the extended reach sometimes needed for modern fingerstyle playing. Very nicely done." - Al Petteway
