"Guitarras de artesanía"
I work alone and build my instruments completely by hand, one or two at a time, with non-industrial techniques and materials, using mostly the traditional guitarmaker's and violinmaker's tools. This allows me to find the limits of the actual woods and structures, resulting in very responsive guitars resonating in wide high-end range of frequencies and overtones.
I build my guitars on a traditional guitar building board called solera, similar to those used by the old Spanish masters. I bend the sides by hand. For classical guitar finish I use 100% pure shellac/French polish.
My building period for one master guitar is 2-3 months, including nearly 300 working hours plus the drying times of glues and finishes. Therefore my guitars are made in a very limited number (only 6-8 pieces a year).
Please ask for available guitars and waiting periods in e-mail.
(Actual waiting time for a new order is about 10-12 months - Updated January 2017)
