Huss & Dalton TOM R Custom Adirondack Top Guitar, 2020


Instrument Categories: ,

Here’s a brand new Huss & Dalton TOM R Custom traditional OM style guitar, with a custom thermo-cured Adirondack Red Spruce top.   This wonderful guitar reflects all the features and quality of Huss & Dalton instruments. 

Based on the Traditional Orchestra Model or OM design that dates to the late 1920s and using Rosewood for the sides and back, this TOM R Custom also sports a ‘Thermo-Cured’ Adirondack Red Spruce top with Herringbone purfling and a vintage-amber tint.   The “Thermo-Cured” process is very similar to what Martin calls the Vintage Tone System and others call ‘Torrified’.  The neck is Mahogany, with Ebony for the fingerboard and bridge.  Tuners are by Waverly, and there are no electronics installed; this is a strictly acoustic guitar. 

The original Huss & Dalton arched top hard shell case is included.

More From The Builder On The Huss & Dalton TOM R:

“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.

The standard TOM-R is a refined brew of Indian rosewood, Sitka spruce, herringbone purfling, ivoroid body bindings, classic slotted diamond fretboard inlay pattern, and a squared headstock with a carved diamond volute. Vintage-style nickel tuning machines by Waverly complete this timeless package. “
