Javier Mengual joined Alhambra Company in August 1972 when he was 16 years old.
As soon as he started working, he felt curious about many of the different works done in the guitar manufacturing process and he got a higher degree in the different areas of the company: sawmill (where every single piece is crafted), varnishing, sanding and polishing process are familiar to him.
In 1988 José María Vilaplana was looking for someone else to work into his personal workshop. There, he learnt from José María Vilaplana and he started to wholly make the guitars at the Luthier level.
Since then, almost 25 years has passed and all of them have been getting experience and knowledge from hundreds of professional guitarists.
