David Brown’s music adventure began in the late `70s while he was in middle school. By the time he was in high school, he was playing in bands and working at a local store in Anaheim where he learned guitar repair and construction. By the mid `80s, he was working for Yamaha Music Corp. in Buena Park as a guitar technician. In 2000, David got the opportunity to work at Fender and thus began his career with the company. By 2006, he received a degree in marketing from California State University at Fullerton and was now working in the Fender Custom Shop building new models as well as making instruments for various artists.

“I hope to bring a perspective that takes into account all of my previous experiences in guitar building and construction. I hope to create these instruments that are the industry standard when it comes to accuracy and feel for the musician. Becoming a Master Builder for the Fender Custom Shop means that you’ve arrived. There is no higher pinnacle than this.”

In 2009, David and Fender parted ways only for him to return two years later to manage the new Fender Visitor Center which was located next to the Corona manufacturing facility. While in this position, David was the first point-of-contact with the company’s customer base as the public visited and participated in building their own custom-made instruments, as well as taking a tour of the factory. In 2016, the FVC closed and David departed from Fender once more. By 2017, he was managing the new G&L Custom Shop in Fullerton, California where he was the principal builder until 2020. David returned to school to pursue a teaching credential in math, but the opportunity to work once again in the Fender Custom Shop altered his course.

Apart from electric guitars being his passion, David enjoys designing and building tube amplifiers and playing original music with his classic rock band. He and his wife enjoy traveling abroad as well as rescuing and fostering dogs and cats. He also enjoys black and white landscape photography.
