More and more, we here at Music Folk are seeing the
smaller boutique builders produce instruments that up
the ante in a acoustic world filled with mass-produced
dreadnaughts. Huss and Dalton guitars seperate themselves
from the pack with guitars that have superb balance
of tone, and structual stability that is without peer.
Made in Virginia by their name sakes, these guitars
capture the unique nuance of older instruments with
some notable differences. One unique feature is the
top construction: every top is bent to a 25 foot radius.
This allows for greater stability of the top without
having to overbuild bracings which rob the top of tone.
Appointments are elegant, yet subtle whether they be
ebony bindings and tunimng buttons on Schaller tuners,
or unique fingerboard inlays.
The voicing of the these guitars differs greatly from
other esteemed small builders. While they have ample
bass and treble clarity, the richness of the midrange
makes all of their models a rewarding experience.
