DSS Hops and Barley

This limited edition instrument is sure to become a collector’s dream guitar. It pays homage to the special grains made famous for their use in beer making. The instrument is crafted with highly flamed walnut back and sides, which fall on the tone spectrum between koa and mahogany. It produces a very balanced sound that mellows out over time to a nice warm tone. The top is made with sinker redwood and is complemented with European flamed maple and pearl inlay binding on the front and a Guatemalan rosewood headplate and pickguard. The headstock, fingerboard, rosette, pickguard, and bridge are adorned with a combination of abalone, mother-of-pearl, and wood inlay, which depict hops and barley in various forms. The instrument combines some Authentic build features like a dovetail neck joint, hide glue construction, and a 1931 old-style logo. It also includes modern features like Liquidmetal® bridge pins and a comfortable high-performance taper neck. This model is limited to 100 instruments and includes a paper label signed by C. F. Martin IV.
