sku: DSS2018
NAMM SHOW SPECIAL for 2018 -- Built of mahogany and Adirondack spruce for light weight and robust sound, this slope shoulder dreadnought features a 2-way adjustable titanium truss rod, carbon fiber and titanium tuning gears, composite carbon fiber/VTS Adirondack bridgeplate and headplate, a carbon fiber ultra-thin pickguard, and Liquidmetal bridge pins that are disguised to look like bone. Liquidmetal pins have been proven to increase sustain, harmonics, and volume output by several decibels, adding to the allure of this physics experiment. Cosmetic touches include maple binding and grained ivoroid snowflake fingerboard inlays.   More Details...
