(USED) We are big fans of Bluegrass Flatpicking guitar in general, and the styles of Clarence White and Tony Rice in particular. About 18 months ago, Mark Dalton and I wondered aloud how they might be able to bring Huss & Dalton’s own fresh approach and voicing to the whole “large sound hole” dreadnought concept….
Just arrived, back on consignment at our humble lumber and tone emporium is Huss & Dalton’s large sound hole traditional dreadnought – a custom TDR model called “The Pilgrim” in honor of the Clarence (and Tony…and Doc…and Merle) standard “I am a Pilgrim.” We’ve sold several of these models now and we think they are the finest traditional dreadnoughts in the Huss & Dalton line.
This big old Brazilian dread has everything you’d expect PLUS the added appeal of that large sound-hole thermo-cured specially voiced Adirondack Spruce top. And what does that get us? I’ll tell you what: A HUGE sounding very traditional warm dreadnought with fine-tuned openness and room-filling presence. It feels loose (not “tight” like many new guitars) and powerful with virtually-limitless headroom and vintage punch but with modern playability. It’s got e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g.
The custom guitar has 1 and 23/32″ nut, 2 and 7/32″ saddle spacing, 21 fret fretboard, large “The Pilgrim” sound hole and rosette, Greven dalmatian pick guard, V shaped neck, no fretboard inlay, no peg head inlay…..
The “cooked” Red Spruce top is golden brown. The sound is mature, loud, deep, and classic.
If you’ve always wanted a classic traditional dread with enough reserve power to carry the day, this is the one!
Truly spectacular in every way, we’re honored to once again represent the very first PILGRIM! Includes Huss & Dalton hardshell case (ask us about updating to a Calton!)
