The DSS17 Black Smoke slope-shoulder is striking yet understated with its satin black finish offset with mother-of-pearl fingerboard inlay, antique white binding, and ivoroid pickguard. The rosewood fingerboard and bridge pop against the rich black satin finish. It is crafted with a solid Sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides for a warm, comforting tone. The Dreadnought size adds depth and volume, while the slope-shoulder and modified low oval neck with high-performance taper make this guitar easy and comfortable to play.
