Workshop

I build my guitars according to the Spanish tradition. The dam and the assembly techniques as well as the use of glue based on skin and bones are essential. My rosettes are handmade with different kinds of veneer. The humidity is strictly controlled to obtain perfect stability. All my guitars have a Shellack finish, a buffer varnish.

I only use hand tools. Working without a machine requires a slower pace, but the direct relationship with materials as well as with traditional tools offers permanent satisfaction. The instrument comes to life at each step, over the hours ...

I strive, throughout the construction process to transmit the warmth and softness of the selected woods: a search for balance, depth and shine.
