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.

Playing and building guitars has been my life and my passion for over 45 years. From the first guitar I built in 1978, and now hundreds of guitars later, I build each guitar as if it were my own. The archtop guitar is a work of art in my eyes, and is my favorite guitar to build and design. Designing and building guitars with my clients, and hearing them played, is still one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. My handmade American Archtop Guitars, for which I have received worldwide critical acclaim, are built for the player. Guitars can be custom ordered and I am always available to discuss your personal preferences. I am president and owner of American Archtop Guitars. All my instruments are built in Nazareth, Pa. USA
