DS-12 Country Boy/HS 10252

The DS-12 Country Boy/HS 10252 shipped to The Fretted Buffalo on December 27th, 2023.

The Country Boy/HS is built around the things that dreams are made of. Built on the foundation of the Professional Series Country Boy, the Country Boy/HS takes things to the next level. An Aged Tone Italian Spruce top provides the ideal stiffness to weight ratio yielding you even more projection and sustain. Animal Protein Glue is used to adhere our very best selection of tone woods together, giving your guitar an extra kick of tonal perfection. Mahogany back and sides tie it all together with signature rich woody tone.

Shortening a neck from 14 to 12 frets necessarily moves the bridge closer to the tailblock, by a distance exactly equal to the length by which the neck is shortened. This configuration places the bridge at the center of the widest part of the lower bout, the most efficient location from which to drive a top. In such a large guitar, the result is an uncommonly full, rich and bold voice that is unique among all our body style offerings. If you’re missing those extra two frets, the DS is now available with an optional Venetian-style cutaway.
