Acoustic Archtop Guitars by Southern California Luthier Tad R. Brown



Tad R. Brown is a 7th generation American craftsman who has been involved in music, art, woodworking, and guitars for over 30 years.

Tad began building guitars in 1996, and has worked for several renowned Southern California guitar repair shops,

including the Laguna Beach Guitar Shoppe, and The Guitar Doctor, where he became known for his fine set-up and fret work.

Brown currently makes his amazing custom instruments from his Laguna studio,

personally hand crafting all aspects of each guitar with exceptional attention to detail, quality, tone, and playability. 

Brown guitars are specially designed and built to be lightweight and acoustically responsive,

featuring all premium grade solid tonewoods, traditionally handmade with classic elegant styling.

Signature appointments including an ultra-light bridge & saddle with no metal parts,

and harmonically tuned tailpiece, allow the instruments to produce a wide dynamic range

of rich acoustic tonal resonance.
