Huss & Dalton DS Crossroads Drop Shoulder Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar & Case
We have taken delivery of these beautiful Huss & Dalton models. To keep these guitars pristine they aren't on display in our showroom but are available to look at upon request. Upon opening these guitars, each one has light marks in the pickguard region, presumably from where they test and set the guitar up initially. Perhaps it would be good if they used a protective film on the pickguard but they are the type of marks that appear after the first few plays and are not particularly noticeable in any realistic way. However, we wanted to point this out.
Take the H&D standard DS. Convert it to a flat top with a short scale. Then take a chisel to the bracing to compensate for the shorter scale length. Strip it back to an unostentatious dress code but maintain the dark sunburst, and you have a workingman's guitar of epic proportions. This guitar can pick a gentle child's tune or rage across a stage.
Please see the embedded video clip of the amazing Molly Tuttle playing one of her Huss & Dalton guitars to witness the calibre of some the players using these beautiful instruments.
