Huss & Dalton DS12 Crossroads Sunburst, 2019 (No Longer Available)


Instrument Categories: , ,

The Huss & Dalton DS12 Crossroads Slope-Shoulder Dreadnought is an outstanding guitar, showing all the power and richness of the dreadnought design. This example was built during 2019 in Staunton, Virginia and is in very good clean condition.

The slope shoulder dreadnought design first appeared around 1916, built by C. F. Martin with a Ditson brand name, but effectively disappeared in the late 1920’s. Martin started producing square-shouldered dreadnoughts – the classic D series – and the slope shoulder re-appeared as a Gibson design, on models like the J-45.

The Huss & Dalton DS12 Crossroads features a Sitka spruce top, mahogany for the back, sides and neck, with Indian rosewood for the fingerboard, bridge and headplate. The binding is creme plastic, and a traditional ‘firestripe’ type pickguard is installed. For hardware, vintage style strip tuners with creme plastic buttons, and bone for the nut and saddle are used. A very well done dark sunburst finish has been applied.

The 12-fret neck design moves the bridge closer to the center of the vibrating top. This increases the volume and the warmth of the guitar, bringing out the mids. As a dreadnought, it has plenty of lower and midrange power, balanced with a rich top end.

As with all Huss & Dalton instruments, this guitar is extremely well built and finished. This Huss & Dalton DS12 is in great shape, with very little wear of any kind; with playing its already very good sound will further improve.

The original hard shell case is included.
