Huss & Dalton makes wonderful guitars in the spirit of the great old prewar Martins and Gibsons. This gorgeous slope-shouldered Dreadnought in Mahogany and Adirondack Spruce takes it's inspiration from the Gibson J45, and the results are magnificent. In addition to the beautiful sunburst, the tone is outstanding -- there's lots of authority and punch in the bass, and the highs sing out without being shrill or strident. This is a perfect guitar for bluegrass or strumming, as there's miles of headroom and a good solid fundamental voice without too many overtones.

2008 Huss & Dalton DS Custom - Slope shouldered Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"Our friends at Huss and Dalton make some terrific guitars, and they just seem to be getting better all the time. This killer DS Custom is an absolute looker, and it plays even better. Bluegrassers will love the feel of the neck width and profile, and there's no more classic wood combination than Adirondack and Mahogany. Clear mids are complimented by the quintessential bottom end that's both sweet and punchy. And who doesn't love a great sunburst!" - Paul Heumiller

"I really like the vintage vibe of this guitar. The sunburst is really cool and the slope shoulder gives it the feel of an old Gibson and an old Martin squished together. The tone is bright and evenly balanced." - Al Petteway
