Welcome to my website! The design of my first guitar was inspired by La Suprema created by Antonio Torres (1817-1891). Since the construction of this first guitar a decade ago, each successive guitar has undergone further sound and construction experiments by slowly modifying, adjusting and changing intricacies in the design.

I have been particularly interested in inventing new bracing schemes and continue to incorporate this into my designs. I prefer to build relatively small guitars and focus primarily on one model. However, custom sized guitars can be commissioned if interested. In terms of bracing design patterns, I mostly use classic fan bracing (7+2), parallel bracing or wooden lattice bracing. I tend to avoid reinforcements transversal to the grain.

Usually I build guitars one at a time, although I sometimes prepare parts for several of them at once, because it helps achieve more accuracy. I choose to work primarily with hand tools because I find them more enjoyable to handle than power tools. I also believe that doing everything by hand truly creates a more personal stamp on my guitars. I assemble the guitar parts in a controlled humidity environment that is at 45%. I choose to use hot hide glue for most joints for its special properties that are not attainable with modern glues. Manel Liria Romero.
