Pre Owned 2011 Huss and Dalton FS Custom Engelmann Spruce and Claro Walnut ID-8181
Pre Owned 2011 Huss and Dalton FS Custom Engelmann Spruce and Claro Walnut
The Huss and Dalton FS, or fingerstyle, features some of the most elegant appointments offered by Huss & Dalton. The FS uses elements of several different models including the depth of the Huss & Dalton OM, the light top bracing of the 00, and the body shape of the CM model.
The FS is a perfect instrument for the experienced contemporary finger-stylist who can appreciate the delicate nuances of a finely made guitar. It will also rewarde anyone with a delicate touch who seeks a ringing, harmonically rich tonal palette.
The Engelmann spruce top and Highly Figured Claro Walnut back and sides make this guitar sound amazing. Engelmann is also known as white, European or German spruce, although they are technically different species. It is usually visually distinguishable from Sitka by its creamier complexion. Sonically, Engelmann has a mature tone, and yields a slightly richer midrange than Sitka, which makes a guitar sound a bit older. The Englemann Top, when combined with Huss and Dalton's hand split Adirondack bracing, helps to further stiffen a softer top, which allows for greater volume production, crisper top end, and more defined basses than normally associated with Engelmann.
Claro Walnut Guitar Wood - (Juglans hindsii) from N. California & S. Oregon, possesses a beautiful purple brown tone, and is often highlighted with black, purple, green, golden and tan. This set of Claro Walnut is highly figured. Tonally, it's not too bright with a nice growl in the low-mids. We have heard it described it as half way between maple and mahogany.
Many Fingerstyle players love Englemann for it's quick note decay. However with the Adirondack Bracing it will stand up to a flat pick just perfectly. The tonal combination is worth a moment of your time to listen to. The guitar is in excellent + condition with only minor fretwear and one small surface scratch on the back. It includes Original Hardshell Case. (You know we offer a 90 Day Interest Free Layaway right?)
