Uncle Dave’s Custom Guitars started in 2011 when founder Dave Dwylitis — a cabinet maker in the Detroit area — made an acoustic guitar for his good friend Benjamin Rios. The friends became business partners, focusing on unique custom guitars.


Watch above as Rios demonstrates a Double Locking Floyd Rose Tremolo / Double Humbucker, which features the company’s patented neck-through-body acoustic design and the “eternal flame” neck in honor of Dave, who passed away in 2016.
