Huss and Dalton TOM-R Sitka and Indian Rosewood ID-6646
Huss and Dalton TOM-R Sitka and Indian Rosewood
This custom Huss and Dalton TOM R combines Sitka and Indian Rosewood. Traditional flat top construction, Herringbone purfling, Ivoroid body bindings, classic slotted diamond fingerboard inlay pattern, a squared peghead with vintage style nickel Waverly tuning machines and a carved diamond volute combine to complete the vintage styling.
Balanced, crisp tone, and responsiveness is the name of the game here; all with Huss & Dalton's trademark "bell-like ring" they have become known for. This guitar is especially suited for fingerstyle players or players with a lighter attack, though this guitar sounds great when moderately flatpicked as well. The even response and airy, shimmery qualities are characteristic of a Huss and Dalton TOM-R, 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 Sitka top is braced with hand split Adirondack Red Spruce, as are all of Huss and Dalton's guitars. Adirondack bracing is a stiffer bracing material and ensures a more responsive and lively top due to a more efficient transfer of energy.
