Hello everyone and welcome back to another Heartbreaker Guitars Blog post. Today we got a real doozie of a guitar we brought back with us from NAMM 2018 from the guys at the Huss and Dalton Booth. Check out the video tour of the booth below!
We really love a good Huss and Dalton guitar, and the one we are talking about today is one of of their best yet. The Albert Lee Signature Guitar from Huss and Dalton.
This absolute beauty epitomizes the best from the world-renowned Huss and Dalton Guitar Company. Quality, play-ability, and a classy, breathtaking beauty that doesn't rely on flash to really shine. Huss and Dalton has always preferred simplicity, allowing subtle small details to really underscore the natural beauty of a guitar. In this case, it's the Bearclaw Sitka Spruce with the trans-black finish to create the dark main tone of the appearance, but framed with the lighter Koa binding and Rosette to create an intoxicating tension in the color scheme that draws you in.
That's a video of the actual Albert Lee himself playing this very guitar. We caught him hanging around the booth at NAMM 2018 and he gave us a little demo of this baby and chatted for a bit. He also signed a picture for us of him holding it, which is pretty freaking SWEET! As you can hear in the video, the guitars got just enough balance between the bass and trebles to really resonate, while giving out enough mid to give your lead lines a nice, smooth punch. The note articulation is pretty mind-blowing too.
The Heartbreaker Take
Albert Lee is a legendary and well-respected guitar player within the community, and Huss and Dalton know more than a thing or two about building guitars. It isn't often you get to parties together with that sort of renown and respect to produce something, and those two names together are pretty much a guarantee of quality. Plus, it is for sale from your favorite Huss and Dalton Dealer, Heartbreaker Guitars and we ONLY sell guitars we believe in. We LOVE this guitar! We will almost be sad to see it leave the shop, but we really want to help someone Fall in Love with this masterpiece like we have!
