Huss and Dalton DS Custom
Huss and Dalton DS Custom Slope Dreadnought Thermo-Cured Red Spruce and Caracolillo Sinker Mahogany Pre-Owned 2015
Given the provenance of the Caracolillo sinker mahogany, we chose to commission another custom DS based on the classic Gibson Jumbo model - world renowned for it's full, balanced expression, warm bass, and excellent projection. The term "sinker" refers to logs that were lost when driving them down river to the mill, which sank to the bottom of the river due to their exceptional density, unable to float.
The denser, heavier mahogany offers better projection with an added boldness in the bass thump and complexity you wouldn't normally expect from mahogany. We have been commissioning sinker mahogany guitars from our friends at Huss & Dalton for more than several years now, and this special set of Caracolillo is striking in color & figuring.
Paired with their Thermo-cured Adirondack top, and hide glue construction, and features a K&K Pure Mini Pickup System. This ia a spectacular rendition of their 14 fret Slope D... A real powerhouse!
This Huss and Dalton DS Custom Slope Dreadnought Thermo-Cured Red Spruce and Caracolillo Sinker Mahogany Pre-Owned 2015 is in Excellent + Condition with only some light surface scratches on the pickguard.
