Applegate, Brian Learn More +
I founded Applegate Guitars in 2001, finding inspiration from my visit to the historic guitar-making district in Granada, Spain, and from my life-long love of wood working and music. Since then, I have been fortunate to do what I love–building fine acoustic guitars, individually and by hand, in my one-person shop. I produce every detail of each instrument with a true passion for the craft. Craftsmanship is particularly noticeable in the details–from the comfort of the neck profile to perfectly executed bracing or painstakingly detailed inlay. I hope this is evident in every guitar leaving my shop.
