2009 Huss and Dalton Custom OM Sitka and Australian Blackwood ID-6405
2009 Huss and Dalton OM Sitka and Australian Blackwood
Huss and Dalton applies the same building style to their OM as they do their standard dreadnoughts. The Traditional Huss and Dalton OM 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.
This OM Custom from Huss and Dalton has an airy, sweet, and lively tone. Balanced, crisp tone, and responsiveness is the name of the game here; all with Huss & Dalton's trademark "bell-like ring" they have become known for. This guitar is especially suited for fingerstyle players or players with a lighter attack. The even response and airy, shimmery qualities are characteristic of Huss and Dalton OMs, and this one captures that to perfection.
This 2009 Huss and Dalton Custom OM features a Sitka top combined with Australian Blackwood. Sitka can be played fingerstyle or with a flatpick and can excel at both. It is ideal for flatpickers who don't require the stiffness of Adirondack, offering more volume and responsiveness from a lighter touch. Australian Blackwood, known to some as Tasmanian Blackwood or Black Wattle, grows fast and tall, up to 45m height. It has visual simliarlities to Koa, but tonally it boasts crisp, defined trebles with deep, warm bass response. When paired with a Sitka Spruce top, it has a commanding presence even when played with bare fingers.
This 2009 Huss and Dalton OM is in excellent + condition with absolutely no fretwear and one almost non-visible scratch on the back. Comes with original Huss and Dalton hardshell case.
