Huss and Dalton Crossroads Red Spruce and Mahogany Pre-Owned 2013 Guitar ID-10421
Huss and Dalton Crossroads Pre-Owned 2013
Huss and Dalton Crossroads 00 Sitka and Mahogany
Established in 1995; Huss and Dalton began when Jeff Huss and Mark Dalton had the idea to build the guitar they wanted to play. While always appreciating the traditional design, both had a vision of a guitar that paid homage to tradition while incorporating improvements in the the structural design and cosmetics of the steel string guitar. Never content to rest on their laurels, they recently introduced their Road Edition model to great success, we are proud to introduce their latest model - "The Crossroads"!
Smaller in body but mammoth in tone, the 00 is based on a true classic of acoustic guitars the L-00. Styled after Gibson's legendary pre-war flat-top the L-00, and long been favored by players of all styles, the L-00 is an icon for good reason. Often favored by blues players, fingerstyle pickers and folk artists, these guitars are noted for their easy playability due to their body size and decisively full sound. Huss and Dalton strove to bring the same style, tone and quality to a smaller-bodied flat-top that was ideally suited to the performance needs of players today.
The 14-fret 00 produces a surprising amount of volume out of a small body guitar. Very clear and balanced in tone, it's braced for light gauge strings, and designed with the finger style player in mind. The Crossroads pairs Red Spruce and Mahogany and features vintage inspired cream bindings and a Rosewood vintage style straight bridge. This is a classic combination that is highly versatile for many playing styles - chords runs are crisp and defined, yet their is a surprising amount of bass for the guitar's size. The Red Spruce top makes for an 00 sized guitar that handles flatpicking very well, boasting virtually unlimited headroom and power. It is extremely comfortable to hold and play, making it nearly impossible to put down, and very little tone is sacrificed.
This guitar features a Custom Red Spruce top, Mahogany back and sides, Sitka Spruce top, Vintage Sunburst finish, Red Spruce top bracing, Matte neck finish, Rosewood fingerboard with pearl dot inlay and straight Rosewood Bridge, Crossroads peghead shape, 4065 Nickel Waverly tuning machines, 1 3/4" Vintage Taper neck, 24.75" scale length, 14-fret neck and cream bindings.
When combined with mahogany on the back and sides, Red Spruce is very lush and has a warm, rich low end that is ideal in front of a microphone, and records perfectly! For those players that are looking to re-create a pre-war sound, with modern upgrades, and that is not in danger of needing a neck reset, bridge re-glue, crack repair, etc, your ship has come in. Plus, you won't need to sell your soul to afford this blues machine!
The tone and projection of this Crossroads is something to marvel at! It is able to deliver such a full, rich, warm and woody tone that some of the bigger bodied guitars have..while having great snap and clarity! Don't miss out on the chance to add this fantastic Huss and Dalton to your collection! You wont want to put it down!!
Huss & Dalton certainly got it right with the Crossroads model! All the warm & woody tone of the vintage L-00 in a modern, great playing and very light weight modern guitar!
