American Archtop, Dale Unger

I started building acoustic guitars in 1977 in collaboration with friend Dick Boak. In 1993 I began an apprentice with Archtop guitar builder, Robert Benedetto. Working for Bob for several years was an experience of a lifetime. Teaching me his secrets and passions for the Archtop guitar that has taken him some 30 years to master. Together we built some of the worlds finest Archtop guitars.

Gradually, I started incorporating Bob’s secrets with my own ideas. In 1996, inspired by Bob and Cindy Benedetto, I began offering my own handmade Archtop guitars under the American Archtop Brand, for which I have received critical acclaim. American Archtop Guitars are built for the player. Guitars are custom ordered and I am always available to discuss your personal preferences. I am president and owner of American Archtop Guitars. My world- famous instruments are built in my home in Stroudsburg, Pa. All guitars are designed and constructed by me from start to finish. Despite the substantial demands for my instruments. I rarely handcraft more than 20 per year.

I played quite a few of Dale Unger's American Archtops and I'm always impressed by the quality and tone. He clearly understands what player's need and want.
