Oral History Information
Will Braham’s father gave him a guitar when he was in eighth grade. It is then, as Will puts it, that his career began. He played all throughout school developing his skills and his drive to make his living with his guitar. He has always been captivated by the theory and technical elements of jazz as well as the rich history of those who helped develop the art form. After attending California State University in Long Beach, Will joined the trio New West Guitars in 2015. During his NAMM interview, Will spoke of his love for arch-top guitars, in particular the one he brought with him, a Gibson ES175. We were lucky enough to have him play for us as well!
