What Norman Brown Plays

(source Ashley J Saunders and Mark Singleton) 

Norman has played everything from standard George Benson signature Ibanez to his own line of Eastman guitars. He’s currently playing a signature model from Singleton Guitars. It’s pretty unique! Thanks to Mark Singleton for the information and the pictures.

Mark – “It is a complete hand carved Archtop with a figured Cedar top figured Mahogany back , Mahogany sides 5 pc.Mahogany/Maple neck Ziricote fingerbrd, Flamed maple binding custom hand turned knobs. This guitar is rich, full and phat with jazz tones. It plays effortlessly and one very big point – it does not feedback!

The guitar is midi with hexophonic pickups in the saddles to deliver acoustic guitar tones which can be played alone or blended with the custom design Singleton/Duncan magnetic pickup!  Norman and I are both ecstatic about the outcome of this instrument.”
