Huss & Dalton Guitar Company Announces Ownership Change
Huss & Dalton Guitar Company has announced the impending retirement of company co-founder, Jeff Huss. Together with business partner, Mark Dalton, Huss started the company more than 25 years ago in his garage. In conjunction with Huss’s retirement H&D is pleased to announce that Brian Dickel has partnered with Dalton to continue the tradition of Huss & Dalton and provide new energy and vision for the future.
According to a statement from the company, “Huss’s humor, demeanor and steady leadership will be missed. Not one to seek the spotlight, Jeff has remained behind the scenes quietly innovating guitar design and building techniques since those early days in his garage. If you’ve played a Huss & Dalton, you have most likely played on a Huss neck. Having carved nearly every one of the 5,500-plus necks to perfection, it is just one of the tasks that Jeff has quietly attended to with a desire to figure out solutions to the many challenges presented daily. Jeff will continue working at H&D during this transition and has made himself available for consultation in the future to ensure the legacy and craftsmanship that you have come to expect remains high.”
The company name will remain the same as will the team of luthiers.
