All Huss & Dalton guitars are braced with hand-split Appalachian red spruce, which has a greater strength-to-weight ratio than other woods more commonly used for braces.
The bridge plates on all our guitars are made from Honduras rosewood, selected for its superior tonal properties, durability, and resistance to string-ball wear.
We use AAA-grade top woods, which are tested individually to determine their load-bearing properties, and are thickness-sanded to achieve the best balance of strength and flexibility.
Our guitars all have bone nuts installed, as well as fully compensated 1/8" bone saddles. We compensate the scale of every string to make the guitars’ intonation as close to perfect as possible. Every hand-crafted guitar neck is quarter-sawn Honduras mahogany, maple, walnut, or Spanish cedar, and all are fitted with a steel-reinforced, adjustable truss rod. Each neck is hand carved for a sleek, comfortable feel and ease of play. On request, we can custom-shape and size the neck of your guitar to fit your hand and your personal requirements.
