(NEW) When we happen upon the perfect formula for a great guitar, the right tonewoods, the right shape, the right builder, we tend to order it again and again... and the DRH is probably the 5th or 6th guitar with these specs that we've ordered from Huss & Dalton in the last year! If we could get more Cocobolo, we'd probably order even more!
Seriously, though... these guitars are LOUD. The D-RH really takes the square shouldered dread idea to the next level, and Huss & Dalton have made some subtle design changes that pay big dividends. Compared to a traditional dread, the H&D has a slightly larger sound hole, tempering the bass and adding complexity to the tone. It also has a tighter top and back radius, which also considers to the sound and the structure of the instrument. Torrefied Sitka spruce sounds incredible paired with Cocobolo, it's a just-right blend of warmth and articulation that has a ton of horsepower. When we hand one of these to a customer, the common response is "OMG!"
Specs: 1 23/32" nut, 2 3/16" saddle spacing. Maple body binding with herringbone top trim. Modified "V" neck with satin finish, gold closed-gear Gotoh tuners. Cocobolo peghead veneer. Included original hard case.
One of the best sounding dreads available and a shop favorite!
