The DY1TS is a great guitar, wonderfully dressed in vintage sunburst with abalone purfling all around the body. The DY1TS is so beautiful you actually may find it hard to take it on stage, but please do. They are incredible sounding instruments both on and off stage and harness Yairis historic build quality. So play away; they are durable, unfailing instruments.
The DY1TS has an extended dovetail neck construction that maximizes the energy transfer between the neck and body. It also allows for a wider range of rod adjustment and decreases the risk of any neck/body irregularities.
