Immersed in music

  • • Daniel is from Granada, a historic citadel of guitar making
  • • His hybrid guitar can be used to interpret various genres of music
  • • He received a national craftsmanship prize in 2016

Daniel always wanted to build instruments. He believed that to do so, he must first learn how to play them. He studied violin and piano, then undertook studies in piano restoration. All were merely stepping stones towards his real passion: guitars. Just like flamenco, guitar making is deeply embedded within the history of his native Granada. Daniel spent 15 years with a master, discovering the many tonalities of wood and learning to create exquisite classical and flamenco instruments. Finally, he took over the management of a guitar workshop in 1991. Since then, he has dedicated himself to the research, restoration and creation of guitars, finding inspiration in historic traditions and driven by his search for harmonic excellence.
