Just about every Huss & Dalton that makes its way through our doors is a special guitar, but this lovely 2012 TOM-R Custom is truly of a different class. As part of the Virginia-based manufacturer's Traditional series, the TOM-R is engineered to be a more responsive instrument for pickers with a lighter touch, and comes from the factory with a red spruce top and bracing. But this guitar's initial owner also opted to use some gorgeous, figured cuts of Chechen wood on the back and sides, adding a richness and a complex treble response even more vivid than the Indian rosewood usually used on the stock version of this model. Paired with Huss & Dalton's deep OM body, this guitar has an incredibly full voice that fills out the entirety of the frequency spectrum and makes it a terrific tool for just about any type of music you might care to name. Koa binding and gold Gotoh tuners with ebony buttons also elevate this guitar above a standard TOM-R, and pair nicely with the abalone inlays for a distinctive visual calling card.

This instrument arrived in our store in excellent condition, with almost no cosmetic wear to speak of at all and a comfortable, medium set up that supports a wide variety of playing styles. It has never undergone any significant repairs and has always been properly humidified. Included in the price is the original hard-shell case.
