Huss & Dalton MJ Custom w/ Cedar Top & Claro Walnut Pre-Owned 2010
This mid-size jumbo, at 16" across and 4 7/8" deep, features a Cedar top and comes custom with a beautifully figured Walnut Claro back and sides. It has a big voice without the muddy quality often associated with guitars of this size. Either you dig the shape or you don't, but you can't question the players who ascended to stardom with a jumbo guitar held in front of them. This Custom MJ is appointed with many aesthetic features that are definitely an upcharge for the Huss and Dalton Factory. The guitar is outfitted with a Black/White/Black purfling and a Koa & Abalone rosette that can catch anyone's eye from across the room. Equipped with the Koa bindings throughout the body, fretboard, and headstock that give this instrument the exotic tonewood look that most guitar players desire. The Stingray fretboard inlays add a subtle dazzle in any light, and the clear pickguard is almost invisible if you don't look close.
Claro Walnut is a beautiful heartwood that grows in California and Oregon and ranges from a lighter pale brown to a dark chocolate brown with darker brown streaks. The colors can sometimes have a grey, purple, or reddish cast. The sapwood is pale yellow-gray to nearly white. walnut’s density and stiffness yield bright treble notes, but with a more present midrange that splits the difference between rosewood and mahogany.
This guitar has been professionally repaired for having a bridge lift, and has been setup and intonated.
This guitar is in Excellent condition with some light scratches on the pickguard, a couple scratches on the headstock, and few scratches throughout the body.
