Huss and Dalton
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.
