2011 Huss and Dalton Custom OM European Spruce and Australian Blackwood ID-8085
2011 Huss and Dalton Custom OM European Spruce and Australian Blackwood
Huss and Dalton applies the same building style to their OM as they do their standard dreadnoughts. The Huss and Dalton Custom 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 2011 Huss and Dalton Custom OM features a European Spruce top combined with Australian Blackwood. European Spruce provides a rich, complex tone and is the perfect topwood for many players who play fingerstyle as well as flatpick. European Spruce is stiffer than Sitka, providing more headroom and power, yet more flexible than Adirondack so that it responds well to a lighter attack.
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 2011 Huss and Dalton OM is in excellent + condition with absolutely no fretwear and a few barely visible surface scratches on the pickguard and headstock. It comes with the original Huss and Dalton hardshell case.
