The History of Huss and Dalton Guitars

Posted by Jason Witt on

Get to know the makers of Huss and Dalton guitars located in Staunton Virginia. Hand made, high-end guitars.

From the Huss and Dalton Website:

Huss and Dalton Guitar Company, Inc. began in late summer 1995 when Jeff Huss and Mark Dalton had the idea to build the guitar they wanted to play. While appreciating the traditional design, both had a vision of a guitar that paid homage to tradition while incorporating improvements in the structural design and cosmetics of the steel-string guitar. Jeff Huss moved from North Dakota to Virginia in 1984 to pursue an interest in bluegrass and traditional music. This interest led him to Stelling Banjo Works where, for nine years, he honed his craft of instrument building. On a visit to Jeff's ship in the summer of 1995, the two began formulating ideas that led to the creation of Huss and Dalton Guitar Company, Inc.

What makes our guitars unique? All Huss & Dalton tops are braced with Red Spruce. The supply we are still using, from 2004, was harvested, due to surrounding disease, from the beautiful hills of Mt. Rogers located in Southwest Virginia. Mt. Rogers is the highest point in the state of Virgina with a summit elevation of 5,729 feet.
