Welcome to Branzell Guitars

Since graduating from Roberto Venn School of Luthiery in 1978, the quest to understand what makes great guitars was instilled and continues to intrigue me. The careful blending of fine tone woods and old world craftsmanship (I still mainly use hand tools) lays the foundation for the sonic and aesthetic qualities that define a Branzell Guitar.

"Being a session player from Los Angeles, I learned a lot about tone. I have credits on hundreds of major label records and I have myself produced Lacy J. Dalton, Paul Revere and the Raiders, Steve Miller, and hundreds of others as well as three of my own acoustic instrumental CDs. Needless to say, I have acquired a huge collection of acoustic guitars. My favorite was a Martin M38 until I played a Branzell Guitar. I own Martins, Taylors, and Takamines and I keep coming back to the Branzell."

Rest in Peace, my friend.
