The Huss & Dalton Crossroads 12 Acoustic Guitar is like 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.
The Huss & Dalton Crossroads 12 acoustic guitar is created from the same Sitka/mahogany combination as the 14-fret Crossroads. The 12-fretter delivers all the magic of our other 12-fret guitars at the expense of two frets’ easy access on the neck.
In both versions you’ll find a warm, woody sound that blends wonderfully with the human voice.
