2002 Huss and Dalton DS12 Custom
We love 12-fret guitars, and this Huss and Dalton DS-12 custom sounds and plays amazing. Big and booming yet articulate voice from this beautiful slope dreadnaught. This is an early guitar from Huss and Dalton, but it is in immaculate condition for a 20 year old guitar. Normally this is a Sitka topped guitar, but the original owner requested an Adirondack spruce top.
Specs from Huss and Dalton:
This DS is pictured with our 12-fret option. With 12 frets to the body and 24.9 scale length, these guitars have the power of our standard DS but with a rounder tonal quality. To many players, 12-fret guitars are imbued with near-mystical qualities. When the neck is moved two frets toward the body, the sound hole and bridge must follow its trajectory and the bracing must be rearranged to suit. There’s no reason to think it will project like a 14-fretter, and it doesn’t. It’s bigger! And not a guitar for the timid!
