Huss and Dalton DS Crossroads Prototype Sitka Spruce and Mahogany
This is a beautiful guitar with a great voice and feel for flatpicking and strumming which is excellent for fingerstyle players. Like most round shouldered D's, this one has a little more midrange and pop because of the radiused top and the larger soundhole. Big in sound but not short on clarity this guitar is a nod to the traditional slope shoulder guitars of the 30's and 40's. This Huss and Dalton DS Crossroads Prototype Sitka Spruce and Mahogany features a Select Sitka Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides with a dark walnut stain to compliment the gorgeous, custom sprayed sunburst top and a shorter scale length of 24.9"
Additional appointments on this wonderful instrument include the East Indian Rosewood fretboard and bridge, tigerstripe pick guard, Kluson TK-0700 by Gotoh tuners with Cream Buttons, cream body binding and matching rosette, MOP dot fingerboard inlays, nitrocellulose high gloss body finish, and ebony bridge pins with mop dots.
This is an all around singer-songwriter type guitar and more than a few fingerstyle players, like these slope D's because of it's balance and bigger midrange voice.
