(NEW) Huss & Dalton, Custom FS guitar, Cocobolo and Salvaged Sinker Redwood! – $6,115

(NEW) The walls of our shop and the shelves of our warehouse are bursting at the seams with great guitars, and darned near all of them were built with a spruce top. That’s fine, but we don’t want bacon with every meal! This FS from Huss & Dalton is a rare bird, then, being in possession of its rare highly figured salvaged sinker redwood top. When the mood strikes us to build an instrument ideal for fingerstyle or Irish music, we look to Cedar and increasingly REDWOOD for warmth and responsiveness. What’s more, we feel that this “warm” top wood perfectly compliments the dense cocobolo sides and back. The two work together beautifully!

The FS is the same size as Huss & Dalton’s CM, something of a slightly scaled down dreadnought but retaining enough body depth for a full and satisfying bass response. This model comes standard with fingerstyle-friendly features like the cutaway, satin-finish neck and ultra-smooth Gotoh 510 tuners. The cosmetics are elegant, with abalone rosette, maple neck and body binding, simple B/W/B purfling scheme and offset fretboard markers. 1 3/4″ nut width, and 2 5/16″ string spacing at the saddle.

The sound is full, sweet, musical, and harmonically complex, but there is no hint of heaviness or boominess. It’s warm and clear with a singing voice. By definition, the “FS” is a “finger style” guitar, but we can see where a disciplined and tasteful rhythm player might reach for a plectrum and apply it to this fine guitar.
