Huss and Dalton DS Custom

This slope shouldered Huss and Dalton DS is a powerhouse. Big in sound but not short on clarity this guitar is a nod to the traditional slope shoulder guitars of the 30's and 40's.

It's built standard with a beautiful vintage sunburst, maple bindings, and 42 style snowflake fingerboard inlays. Custom appointments include an Adirondack Spruce Top, Mahogany back and sides, Ebony bridge and fretboard, 25.4 scale length and a Maple Fretboard Binding.

This is a beautiful guitar with a great voice and feel for flatpicking and strumming which is excellent for fingerstyle players. Like most round shouldered D's, this one has a little more midrange and pop because of the radiused top and the larger 4 3/8" soundhole. This is an all around singer-songwriter type guitar and more than a few fingerstyle players, like these slope D's because of it's balance and bigger midrange voice.

The custom Adirondack top  brings the guitar balance and warmth, and when coupled with Mahogany brings the guitar strong fundamentals, a lightning quick response, crisp trebles, and virtually unlimited headroom. Adirondack was the legendary topwood used on most pre-war American-made guitars. Adirondack has a high stiffness across and along the grain, making it one of the go-to topwoods for flatpickers.

The Mahogany back and sides produce a tone that is clear and powerful. The low end is spectacular and much more prominent than many standard mahogany guitars of this size.  The midrange, while maintaining stunning clarity and definition, is very smooth and pleasant, making for a very balanced sound without the harsh upper mids and trebles that can sometimes take place. Lending clarity and punch to the guitar is Huss and Dalton’s exclusive hand split Adirondack bracing,  which helps to add stiffness to the top, however, never at the sacrifice of the responsiveness.

This Pre-Owned Guitar is in Excellent Condition w/ only light scratches on the pickguard and headstock.
