We think of the Crossroads guitar as a smaller DS Crossroads. The tonal balance is similar, and its volume doesn’t suffer much from being caged in a smaller body. You may find that the Crossroads makes a more convenient traveling companion than its DS Crossroads big brother. The dark sunburst and unpurfled cream binding present a no-frills look, perfect for the unpretentious player who prefers to let the music attract the attention. The Crossroads is also a shade deeper in the body than the 0, 00, and 000 series, creating a guitar with perhaps a bit bassier presence. Light gauge strings can bring out the best of the lightly braced top, though the Crossroads warranty allows for mediums.
Standard woods are Sitka Spruce top with Mahogany back and sides.
