Selection by Body Shape

 

Body shapeYou may view our guitars sorted by body shape. Each form has its own attributes which will manifest in an advantage or perhaps disadvantage for the individual player. In the quest for a suitable guitar, body shape is of vital importance to the player.
A number of attributes are explained below but these are indications rather than dogmatic distinctions.
The important issue is always: it must suit you!


Grand Concert

Grand Concert Body shape

The Grand Concert is evidently our most popular body shape. This body size fits most players and suits a diversity of styles. That would include primarily finger style players and of course also general song accompaniment, especially in the rock or pop categories.

Dreadnought

Dreadnought Body shape

For most, the dreadnought has immediate visual appeal. This is 'the classic' among steel string guitars. Typically, this form is the choice of singer/songwriters. Legends like Johnny Cash, Nick Cave and John Lennon were all dreadnought players.

Auditorium

Auditorium Body shape

This is the smallest body shape in the Lakewood range. The neck has 12 frets to the body, as compared to all the other shapes which have 14 frets to the body. This makes the auditorium particularly compact and comfortable, especially suitable for players of a slighter build. Due to its fast response, the auditorium is enjoyed by flat pickers and blue grass players.

Jumbo

Jumbo Body shape

This is our 'Biggie', able to convince by way of sheer power. It is the typical singer/songwriter guitar which, with its rich voice, provides a solid foundation for solo performances. The narrower neck comfortably allows thumb fretting.
