Huss and Dalton "The Pilgrim" Custom
The Pilgrim is designed to be a bluegrass picker’s box, with East Indian rosewood back and sides, a Thermo-cured Adirondack spruce top with Adirondack red spruce bracing. The soft v-shaped mahogany neck has a rosewood peghead overlay, but with no peghead inlays, nor inlays of any kind in the ebony fingerboard.
The bridge is also ebony, and the top features herringbone purfling and a style-28 rosette around the enlarged sound hole.
The topwood on this guitar is Thermo-Cured Appalachian Red Spruce, one of the most aggressive and powerful woods available. Red Spruce provides virtually unlimited headroom when played hard, perfect for heavy handed bluegrass players who are competing with louder string band instruments such as banjos and fiddles.
Huss and Dalton's Thermo-Cured Appalachian Red Spruce tops are treated with a unique curing process. The commercial version of this process, known as, “thermo curing”, “wood torrefaction” or “roasting”, was developed in Finland to enhance durability and appearance of other wood materials.
The Indian Rosewood back and sides provide a deep, extended low end when compared to mahogany. This particular set of Indian Rosewood is not only beautiful, it provides a perfect tone and volume for all styles of play. The low end is clear, distinct and incredibly powerful, without sacrificing the strong high end
This Pre-Owned Guitar is in Very Good Condition w/ light scratches on the top above the soundhole and on the pickguard. There are also light scratches throughout the back.
