Huss and Dalton Custom 00-SP Red Spruce and Brazilian Rosewood
While Huss and Dalton are praised for their dreadnoughts, we are always impressed by the remarkable balance and response of their small bodied beauties. And we are constantly blown away by anything that comes out of their shop! This Huss and Dalton Custom 00-SP delivers on both counts - a true fingerpickin' dream!
Huss and Dalton applies the same building style to their 00-SP as they do their standard dreadnoughts. The top is built with a 25' radius. A positive by-product of the radiused soundboard design, besides its load bearing properties, is a boost in the mid-range without overpowering the bass and trebles. This is design function is showcased in this guitar - boasting unsurpassed tonal balance.
The Huss and Dalton 12-fret 00 produces a surprising amount of volume out of a small body guitar. The Huss and Dalton 00SP has ample warmth and richness that fills a room. Studio musicians will appreciate how incredibly balanced it is across the fingerboard. No frequency is left unrepresented.
This particular one is constructed with a Red Spruce top and Brazilian Rosewood back and sides. The combination is a perfect one, with rich, blooming low-end and crisp, sweet trebles with complex overtone - it flaunts an extraordinary voice. It practically demands to be fingerpicked; with a blossoming, developed tone that sings. Red Spruce, "the holy grail" of topwoods, drives the top of this powerful instrument.
Adirondack is generally favored by heavy handed players, and provides nearly unlimited headroom when you need the extra power. Additionally, the Red Spruce top is braced with hand split Adirondack Red Spruce, a stiffer bracing material that makes for a more responsive and lively top.
Brazilian Rosewood is an extremely rare tonewood with deep bass and brilliant trebles that was used on the famous vintage guitars we have all grown to love. An international trade embargo on Brazilian rosewood products guarantees that the relatively few sets remaining in this country will continue to spiral in price as the supply dwindles.
Brazilian brings remarkable darkness, depth, and warmth; while exhibiting glorious overtones across the entire tonal spectrum. As Brazilian Rosewood is in short supply and no one really knows how much will be available in the years to come, this is an instrument that is sure to climb in rarity and value.
This extraordinary custom instrument features appointments including, Abalone rossette, koa body, fretboard and peghead binding, T Style slotted peghead with No Logo, Tortoise pickguard and 3504 Waverly Tuners.
This instrument is in excellent + condition with very minor pick scratches on the pickguard.
