The North American Guitar

About us

The North American Guitar is a private equity-backed business founded by entrepreneur and keen blues guitarist Robert J. Montague, and his son Benjamin Montague, in 2010, London, England.

Home of the world’s finest guitars

The North American Guitar is the home of the world’s finest guitars. Representing the greatest luthiers and handmade guitar brands on the planet, TNAG is the number one destination for discerning players and collectors alike both online and in their showroom in Music City, Nashville, Tennessee.

Together with an incredible passion for everything that is high-end steel-string guitar, and with music running through their veins, The North American Guitar has grown from a passion project in London to a world-renowned guitar store.

As the number one destination for the finest guitars, TNAG’s mission has always been to bring the very best guitars to the most discerning players and provide a superlative customer experience both in-store and online.
