DS

This slope-shouldered guitar is designed for brawny power. Big in sound but not short on clarity, this guitar is a nod to the traditional slope-shoulder guitars of the 1930s and ’40s. Its standard woods are Sitka spruce paired with either Indian rosewood or mahogany. In concept, we think of the rosewood version as a slope-shouldered D-RH and the mahogany version as a slope-shouldered DM. The pairs sound similar, and all four sound their best with medium strings and hard playing. The DS comes standard with a beautiful vintage sunburst, maple bindings, and 42-style snowflake fretboard inlays.
