Huss and Dalton OOSP Mahogany

Our first Huss and Dalton “Sinker Mahogany” was custom ordered, so incredibly beautiful, and so phenomenal in sound, we knew we had to order another one immediately! We had a custom order the very day we delivered the prior one, so we were anxiously awaiting our new “Sinker”. The Huss and Dalton 00SP All “Sinker” Mahogany from Huss and Dalton, built using old growth "sinker mahogany," is nothing short of spectacular! "If you like wood with a story, then it doesn't get any better than this material. This is material from the bottom of Belizean rivers. Belize used to be a British colony. The British exported a lot of Mahogany from Belize throughout history and during the 19th century they used the rivers of Belize as their main source of transportation. Occasionally the denser Mahogany logs would sink! These logs for over 100 years had been lost and forgotten, until now!" Read the rest of this entry about Sinker Mahogany here.

The topwood on this guitar is also gorgeous piece of ribboned Sinker Mahogany, which lends a crisp, defined tone to finger picked chords. This instrument is incredibly responsive to bare fingers, where you barely have to touch the strings and the sound leaps out of the guitar!

The Sinker Mahogany back and sides produces a tone that is clear and powerful. The low end is spectacular and much more prominent than many standard mahogany guitars of this size. The midrange, while maintaining stunning clarity and definition, is very smooth and pleasant, making for a very balanced sound without the harsh upper mids and trebles that can sometimes take place. Lending clarity and punch to the guitar is Huss and Dalton’s exclusive hand split Adirondack bracing, which helps to add stiffness to the small top, however, never at the sacrifice of the responsiveness.

Some gorgeous appointments have been chosen to further compliment this little beauty. Abalone Rosette, Flamed Koa bindings on the body as well as the fretboard and a custom 45 Style fretboard inlay take this guitar over the top! A custom Koa heel cap, Abalone dot bridge pins, last but not least upgraded Nickel Waverly Tuners with ebony buttons only add to the classy package. How do you get one, as this one is sold? Simply place a call to Artisan to reserve our next one!
