Huss & Dalton TOM-R OM Body Steel String Guitar 2018

Huss & Dalton TOM-R OM Body Steel String Guitar 2018

Classic timeless styling. The Huss & Dalton TOM-R combines traditional flat-top construction with the red spruce bracing used in all Huss & Daltons. This guitar is especially suited for finger-style players or flatpickers with a lighter touch, yet holds up to vigorous strumming when the performance becomes more intense. The even response and airy, shimmery qualities the OM has always been known for are maintained and expanded on in the Huss & Dalton TOM-R.

C. F. Martin Grand J-12 40e Twelve String Jumbo Acoustic, 2011

C. F. Martin Grand J-12 40e Twelve String Jumbo Acoustic, 2011

This C. F. Martin Grand J-12 40e Special is a close cousin of the fantastic 2005 Martin J-40 posted recently. The Grand J-12 40e is a 12-string guitar, using a slightly larger version of the J body, with ’40’ level Abalone decorations and a DTAR multi-source pickup system. The Grand J body is somewhat bigger than a the standard J, and has a remarkably full bottom end and midrange presence delivered without hesitation. The top end is as bright and sparkly as you would expect from a Sitka Spruce top.

William Laskin Classical Guitar, 2001

William Laskin Classical Guitar, 2001

this guitar, built during 2001 at Laskin’s shop in Toronto, Canada, needs no decoration beyond the spectacular grain of its Brazilian Rosewood back, sides, headplate and bridge. This set shows off the key visual elements of this species – the dark veining, deep patterning, and a subtle orange glow. The top is red cedar, the neck spanish cedar, and the fingerboard ebony. The bass bout includes the Laskin Arm-rest, designed to make the player more comfortable without compromising any of the tonal characteristics of the box. It is built in the traditional Spanish method, with a ‘slipper foot’ that the sides slot into.

C. F. Martin 000-15S Steel String Guitar Mahogany, 2006

C. F. Martin 000-15S Steel String Guitar Mahogany, 2006

The C. F. Martin 000-15S Steel String Guitar  body size looks back to Martin’s early history, first appearing in 1906 as the 000-18. Previously, the 0 and 00 sizes drew from Georg Stauffer and traditional designs. As far back as the 1820s, C F Martin worked with Stauffer in Vienna, Austria as shop foreman. In 1833 he moved to New York, finally settling in the more familiarly Germanic area of Nazareth, Pennsylvania. The early guitars built there strongly resemble the ‘0’ body size. These body designs produce a well balanced, even tone with good representation across the frequency range. As the body size increases, the potential for output volume does too – the 000 is the loudest of the group. The use of mahogany for the top provides a warm, rich tone, not quite as bright or sparkly as spruce can provide.

Gibson J-45 Slope Shoulder Dreadnought Guitar Sunburst, 1962

Gibson J-45 Slope Shoulder Dreadnought Guitar Sunburst, 1962

This Gibson J-45 Slope Shoulder Dreadnought Guitar Sunburst is in clean condition and plays quite well. It appears to have been recently refretted, which included cleaning up the rosewood fingerboard. There are a few minor spot touch ups on the neck to fill dents. These were done competently and probably at the same time as the refret. There is also a colour touchp on the top at the lower treble bout edge, a bit of fill on a finger wear area between the pickguard edge and the bridge, and a touchup of some pick marks below the bass side soundhole.
