The Pirate-35 is a traditional Slope Shouldered Dreadnought. This is the battleship in the line. Big voice with an easy playing dynamic makes this guitar an excellent piece for holding your own in a group of players. Beautiful bass end balanced with a treble growl.
I've come to find that when paired with a Rosewood, the full scale length 25.4' gives this the extra boost to really shine. When paired with Mahogany, I prefer a 24.75' scale length that allows the Mahogany to present a woody flavor that stands above.
