Huss and Dalton Custom 00 Engelmann and Cocobolo ID-6547
Huss and Dalton Custom 00 Engelmann and Cocobolo
This is a very special instrument. The first 2 which we've had in the shop sold almost immediately. Fortunately this one has just arrived and we are pleased to have it available for you. This Huss and Dalton Custom OO produces a surprising amount of volume out of a small bodied guitar. Very clear and balanced in tone, it is braced for light gauge strings and designed with the fingerstyle player or those a lighter touch in mind. We often commission Huss and Dalton to build us a 00 with an Engelmann Spruce top for that very reason. The response of Engelmann is perfectly suited for such players. So, when the opportunity to pair Engelmann with a stunning piece of Cocobolo came along - we were excited to say the least.
Cocobolo characteristically has poweful low overtones resulting in a complex bottom end. The overall effect is also a bell like tone with clear, slow decaying harmonics. Fast and responsive, it articulate with ample note distinction and a rich low end. This particular set of Cocobolo has very deep red streaks alternating with lighter red streaks, the robust Red colors are complimented by beautiful contrasting black streaks. The custom Koa bindings really compliment the Engelmann top and Cocobolo back and sides.
This guitar features some of the most simple and elegant appointments Huss & Dalton has to offer, such as a Vintage Style Straight Bridge, Maple/W/B/W/B/W/B purfling, Herring Bone Rosette with Rings, Nickel Waverly tuners, 12 fret style slotted square inlays, and custom Cocobolo headstock overlay.
