Huss and Dalton TOM-M Custom Bearclaw Italian Spruce Top and Light Aging Toner ID-5255
Huss and Dalton TOM-M Custom Bearclaw Italian Spruce Top and Light Aging Toner
The OMC is usually built with a Sitka Spruce top, but not on this custom beauty! Like the cutaway model before it, this Huss and Dalton TOM-M has a airy, sweet, and lively tone that only Bearclaw Italian Spruce and Mahogany bring to the table. Balance, crispness, and responsiveness is the name of the game here; all with Huss & Dalton's trademark "bell-like ring" they have become known for. The even response and airy, shimmery qualities are characteristic of Huss and Dalton OMs, and this one captures that to perfection.
Huss and Dalton applies the same building style to their OM as they do their standard dreadnoughts. The top is built with a 25' radius. A positive by-product of the radiused soundboard design, besides its load bearing properties, is a boost in the mid-range without overpowering the bass and trebles. This is design function is showcased in this guitar - boasting unsurpassed tonal balance. The Italian Spruce top is braced with hand split Adirondack Red Spruce, a stiffer bracing material that makes for a more responsive and lively top.
This top of this custom model is finished with a light aging toner that is classy and understated, adding just the right amount of vintage appearance. The headstock is overlaid with Mahogany, while the Waverly tuners are graced with ivoroid buttons.
This guitar is a dream when it comes to fingerstyle playing, offering great response and a wide open feel. Flatpickers will be delighted by the power and clarity this guitar is capable of as, this custom TOM-M holds up to a surprisingly heavy attack from the thickest Blue Chip pick made, making it an incredibly versatile guitar across the spectrum. Any studio microphone will sound incredible with this guitar in front of it... Mahogany, Bearclaw Italian Spruce, and Huss & Dalton's masterful build style really come to life on this killer OM.
