Huss & Dalton TD-M Custom Sinker Mahogany and Bearclaw Sitka Spruce Used (2010)

A great custom dreadnought built by Huss & Dalton in 2010. Built with a highly figured “Bearclaw’ Sitka Spruce top paired with old growth ‘Sinker’ Mahogany from Belize, this is great wood with a story. Cut from logs harvested originally in the late 1800’s by the British in the rain forest of Belize. The only way to get logs out from deep in the jungle to the shipping vessels was to float them down rivers. Occasionally an old growth log got stuck or sank and got buried in the mud. Some became a time capsule of tone wood, did not rot, and aged for over a century before they could be rescued by modern means. This wood has the old bone sound, serious vintage wood in a new build.

Includes original TKL tweed Huss & Dalton hardshell case.

Free shipping in the continental United States.

An excellent condition TD-M traditional flattop dreadnought built by Huss & Dalton in 2010. Built with a highly figured “Bearclaw’ Sitka Spruce top paired with old growth ‘Sinker’ Mahogany from Belize, this is great wood with a story. Cut from logs harvested originally in the late 1800’s by the British in the rain forest of Belize. The only way to get logs out from deep in the jungle to the shipping vessels was to float them down rivers. Occasionally an old growth log got stuck or sank and got buried in the mud. Some became a time capsule of tone wood, did not rot, and aged for over a century before they could be rescued by modern means. This wood has the old bone sound, serious vintage wood in a new build.

The old growth Mahogany was paired with a wonderful bookmatched set of highly figured ‘Bearclaw’ Sitka Spruce, a figuring so called because the wide figured grain pulls are reminiscent sometimes of, yup you guessed it, a bear clawing the wood. This is a sign of an older tree and one aged perfectly for guitar tonewood. The headstock features a Brazilian Rosewood overlay with some wild figuring to top off this beauty.

Includes original TKL tweed Huss & Dalton hardshell case.
