The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

Huss & Dalton TOMR Custom


Instrument Categories: ,

Here we have a new Huss & Dalton TOMR Custom featuring a Thermo-Cured Sitka Spruce top and Indian Rosewood back and sides! The model name breaks down to Traditional Orchestra Model Rosewood.

On this guitar, the Custom refers to the choice of the thermo-cured Sitka top;  it’s also available with an Adirondack or Red Spruce top, and without the thermo-cure. Thermo-cured wood is also known as baked, torrefied, and by Martin as part of their VTS (vintage tone system). The process uses controlled, high heat, atmospheric pressure and minimal oxygen and simulates aging. 

The OM body dates to the very early 1930s as guitarists migrated away from banjos, and required greater access to frets than the earlier 12-fret models could provide.

We’ve received a number of Huss & Dalton TOMR Custom models over the years and they have consistently been extremely well and thoughtfully built and finished, with a great sound.

More From The Builder On The Huss & Dalton TOMR:

“Classic timeless styling. The Huss & Dalton TOMR 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 flat-pickers 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, ivoried 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. “

The Huss & Dalton TOMR Custom is supplied with its original tweed hard shell case.
