2009 Huss and Dalton 00SP Engelmann Spruce and Mahogany ID-7660
2009 Huss and Dalton 00SP Engelmann Spruce and Mahogany
The Huss and Dalton 12-fret 00 produces a surprising amount of volume out of a small body guitar. Huss and Dalton choose premium Engelmann Spruce for their 00; a top perfectly suited for fingerstyle players. Engelmann exhibits a richer, more complex tone than Sitka, while being remarkably easy to articulate and drive with a light touch. Even the softest of players with be able to appreciate the overtone and response this Huss and Dalton 00SP displays.
The 00-SP 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.
Huss and Dalton even braces their 00-SPs with hand split Adirondack Spruce bracing. A stiffer wood than Sitka, this allows for a more lively and responsive top without sacrificing volume and projection. The 00-SP is braced for light gauge strings, on par with most fingerstylist’s needs.
This instrument has appointments including the Mahogany back and sides, Waverly 4066 Nickel w/Ivoroid buttons f/Slotted Peghead tuners, Indian Rosewood body and fretboard binding and peghead overlay.
Other design features that such players will enjoy are the pyramid bridge and traditional slotted headstock. All these little details are design with purpose in mind, adding increased sustain and a lovely liveliness and breath. We love the 00-SP, and are sure you will too!
This guitar is in excellent + condition! Hard to distinguish used from new, this guitar just has a few surface scratches on the top and back which we were unable to capture in the detailed photos below. It has very minor fretwear and includes the original hardshell case.
