I am beginning to realize what implications this company must have had on the Spanish guitar market.  Many questions still have to be sorted out. Up till now this research showed surprise after surprise for me. And the biggest is, that I fell in love with Spain. The immense history and mysteries of Spain are a constant wonder for me.

I hope you are inspired to publish the knowledge/research of your own favourite guitar luthier (to get better awareness of the complete Spanish guitar builders).

Feel free to propose changes or additions. Any information to extend my database is welcomed at:
