The work of the good luthier to make premier guitars

Experience and know-how are fundamental, but passion for his work is the basis for creating premier guitars

The hands of an artisan show us the experience, know-how, and technique that a luthier has used to create so many guitars. Premier guitars, exceptional, which win guitarist's love in his doing daily, as well as the love of the most demanding public.

In Alhambra Guitars we have enjoyed having great artists, which is definitely what a luthier is.

From José María Vilaplana and José Margarit to Javier Mengual, David Romà or José Miguel Moreno. Exceptional artisans who join many others who have named models, or contributed directly to the creation of premier guitars in Manufacturas Alhambra.

 

Each guitar is different

 

When a luthier prepares the raw material to create a premier guitar, the selection of the wood is fundamental as for the top and for the sides and back.

The experience is key in the selection of the best part of the wood to make the top. Both in cedar, as in German spruce, the homogeneity of the waters and the direction of the veins, are aesthetic characteristics but at the same time of high acoustic importance.

Once the best part of the wood has been chosen, the work to establish an adequate thickness in each area of the top must be exquisite so that the sound can be the best. A sound with quality, quantity, and projection is sought. The Spanish sound.

In the preparation of the sides and back, the work is not minor, the choice of wood has to be precise so that the bending of the sides is adequate and the soundboard is perfect.

The other parts of the guitar, of course, are equally important, the styling of the neck and the finesse in the preparation of the fingerboard are largely responsible for the comfort that the guitarist will have.

 

The Spanish luthier

 

Spanish premier guitars and the luthier formed in Spain are demanded by guitarists from all over the world. The Spanish sound means the tradition and essence of an instrument, the guitar, which is part of the history of Spain.

The schools of Granada and Madrid are possibly the most important, with renowned luthiers such as the Ramírez saga of several generations, or Hernández and Aguado, to which they are joined by other regions, others like Ignacio Fleta or Romanillos.

We can start saying names of prestigious luthiers and Spanish brands, but we would never end.

TThe important thing is that tradition and know-how continue, and Guitarras Alhambra is doing that work. The recognition of the Luthier and the construction of premier guitars keeping the sound and the Spanish tradition.
