Pre-owned Huss & Dalton DS Custom.  A beautiful example of the superb craftsmanship from Huss & Dalton.  This DS Custom was made for a customer who spec'd out a custom burst finish and nut width of 1 3/4".  The condition is very good overall, but does show some light signs of wear and play.  A few small indentations of the back and one on the top.  The frets are recently crowned and have 90% of the life left in them.  The installed pickguard has pick wear on and around it, and very light rash on the back are to be noted.  Overall, this sounds like a cannon but can be soft and gentle making a very versatile acoustic.  Included Huss & Dalton OHSC.  LR Baggs pickup is installed/included.

 

This slope-shouldered guitar is designed for brawny power. Big in sound but not short on clarity, this guitar is a nod to the traditional slope-shoulder guitars of the 1930s and ’40s. Its standard woods are Sitka spruce paired with either Indian rosewood or mahogany. In concept, we think of the rosewood version as a slope-shouldered D-RH and the mahogany version as a slope-shouldered DM. The pairs sound similar, and all four sound their best with medium strings and hard playing. The DS comes standard with a beautiful vintage sunburst, maple bindings, and 42-style snowflake fretboard inlays.
