DS Crossroads

Take the H&D standard DS. Convert it to a flat top with a short scale. Then take a chisel to the bracing to compensate for the shorter scale length. Strip it back to an unostentatious dress code but maintain the dark sunburst, and you have a workingman’s guitar of epic proportions. This guitar can pick a gentle child’s tune or rage across a stage.
