About Brad

Brad has been involved in music since a very young age, and has had a love for the guitar for most of his life. He started doing custom manufacturing work and custom finishing when he was 14 years old, and took apart his first guitar shortly afterward. Over the course of his time working on the design and creation of custom art pieces, sculpture, and furniture, Brad developed a love for wood and metal work, and truly enjoys finding creative ways to combine the two.

Brad has been designing custom finishes and aesthetics for guitars for over a decade, and has found a way to combine his manufacturing background and creative finishing ideas into something unique and functional. A guitar is a blank canvas, and its look and sound are both means of self-expression for the artist. Taking a basic guitar part and turning it into something that changes the entire look of a guitar and becomes an interesting focal point is something the Brad takes great joy in. 

With Angove Guitars, Brad wants to give you the ability to make your instrument feel like something completely different and new with just a few screws. He aims to provide something more than just custom pick guards. The ability to bolt on an entire new aesthetic.
