Handmade from the finest select woods and materials

Acoustic Archtop Guitars

by Southern California Luthier

Tad R. Brown



Tad R. Brown is an American craftsman who has been working with music, art, wood, and guitars for over 30 years.
Tad began building guitars in 1996 and has worked for several renowned Southern California guitar repair shops where he became known for his fine set-up and fret work.
Personally handcrafting all aspects of each guitar with exceptional attention to detail, tone, quality, and playability, Brown guitars are specially designed to crossover between jazz and acoustic instruments.
Each guitar is hand made from all premium grade solid tone-woods to be lightweight, responsive, and comfortable to play.
Signature appointments including an ultra-light bridge & saddle with no metal parts, and harmonically tuned tailpiece, inspire instruments that create a wide dynamic range of rich acoustic tonal resonance.
