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.
