Pre Owned 2012 Huss and Dalton TD M Sinker Mahogany and Adirondack Spruce with Herringbone ID-6744
Pre Owned 2012 Huss and Dalton TDM Sinker Mahogany and Adirondack Spruce with Herringbone
Our Huss and Dalton TDM, built using old growth "sinker mahogany," is nothing short of spectacular! Huss and Dalton recently purchased 10 sets of this special wood and we are honored to have this monster sinker mahogany dreadnought in the store.
"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!"
The topwood on this guitar is Adirondack Spruce, one of the most aggressive and powerful woods available. Adirondack provides virtually unlimited headroom when played hard, perfect for heavy handed bluegrass players who are competing with louder string band instruments such as banjos and fiddles.
The Sinker Mahogany back and sides produces a tone that is clear and incredibly powerful. The low end is spectacular and much more prominent than many standard mahogany guitars. The midrange, while maintaining stunning clarity and definition, is very smooth and pleasant, making for a very balanced D-18 style sound without the harsh upper mids and trebles that can sometimes jump out.
We've also opted for a custom herringbone top purfle on this guitar. Not to be confused as just a cosmetic upgrade, the herringbone purfle on this guitar makes the mahogany backed dreadnought much warmer with increased low end and richer high-end and an instant broken-in feel in regards to responsiveness. The tone ends up falling somewhere in between traditional mahogany and rosewood guitars... offering the detail and clarity that only mahogany can offer, but with the herringbone, gaining some of warmth and richness usually associated only with rosewood guitars.
Additional appointments include Waverly 1129 Special Issue Vintage Oval Tuners, TM Style rosette, tortoise pickguard, long pattern dots on the ebony fretboard and an Ebony belly bridge with thru-saddle and 2 7/8" string spacing.
