Dale Unger makes incredible six &
seven string guitars under the moniker of American Archtop.
Best of all us workin' stiffs can afford 'em.
Never have I owned a guitar that played this well and sounded this good.
As Long As He's Making Them - I'll Never Buy Another Maker's Guitars.
Here is Dale, Sharon and me at Dale's display table
at the A.S.I.A Symposium in Nashville, March 2000
I met Dale at the 1996 A.I.S.A. (Association of Stringed Instrument Artisans) symposium. Jimmy Bruno talked me into switching to 7-String and showed me over to Dale's display table. Three days later I ordered a guitar from Dale. I seemed to happen along at the right time.
He was just introducing a limited edition model he called "The Benedetto Tribute Model". It features a carved German spruce top & carved European flamed maple back & sides. To my knowledge he only made ten of these. I've got Number 2 (seething with jealousy aren't you)
As far as I'm concerned, Dale is destined to be one of his generation's great guitar makers.
He's also a great guy with a sharp sense of humor & a great laugh.
