With 12 frets to the body and 24.9 scale length, this custom has the full DS power and more with a clear and punchy rounded tonal quality. Built with an wonderful set of Malaysian Blackwood for the back and sides (a rare Ebony prized for it’s sustaining, glassy tap tone that’s compared to African Blackwood), this bookmatched quarter sawn set features rich brown and red hues with black streaks and the striking contrast of the heart wood center seam. Paired perfectly with a Thermo-Cured Adirondack Red Spruce top for volume and robust tone, this guitar comes alive in your hands be it gentle fingerstyle playing to full strumming and flatpicking.  Other custom features include Hide Glue construction, Abalone rosette, Full Flamed Maple Binding, Blackwood headstock overlay and natural finish top. This is truly a one of a kind DS-12 build.

To many players, The DS-12 fret guitars are imbued with near-mystical qualities. When the neck is moved two frets toward the body, the sound hole and bridge must follow its trajectory and the bracing must be rearranged to suit. There’s no reason to think it will project like a 14-fretter, and it doesn’t. It’s bigger! And not a guitar for the timid!

Includes deluxe tweed TKL hardshell case and Lifetime Warranty.

Free shipping in the continental United States.
