Huss & Dalton TD-M Sinker Mahogany – our next review!
A Huss & Dalton TD-M Sinker Mahogany model will be the subject of a video and hi-def audio recording later today. We look very forward to visit from the owner, and to playing this guitar again.
It has been chosen as our next review, which we hope to have up early next week.
For those unfamiliar with sinker wood, it refers to timbers that were salvaged from bodies of water, where it has lain for years. In this case the mahogany came from Belize, where whole logs of old growth Big Leaf mahogany was submerged in a river for perhaps a century or more. Kiln dried in Belize, it has made its way to various luthiers, in this case it was made into a Huss & Dalton TD-M. Yum.
