These Austin Acoustic Dreadnaughts have the feel and sound of guitars twice the price. But don't take our word for it!...come by and check one out. The AA25DS is the flagship model of our new series of open pore, satin finished guitars. Open Pore finishes are thinner and lighter than full gloss finishes. This thin finish combined with top quality materials and a scalloped bracing pattern allows the top to move more in response to strumming or finger picking, resulting in a well balanced, dynamic tone with great projection and clarity.
