In Sweden, just about every professional guitarist now use guitars made by Per Hallgren. Swedish professional players who use his guitars are:
Göran Söllscher
Mats Bergström
The Gothenburg Combo
Georg Gulyas
Eric Lammers

Today I had the chance to talk to Jan Pascal (and Alexander Kilian), the famous guitar duo "Cafe del Mundo", after their concert in Stuttgart. Ok, their music is more flamenco-style than classic-style, although they played some Manuel de Falla pieces today. Nevertheless, maybe we can add them here in the guitarists list. Alexander plays a Sanchiz Lopis (carbon strings), and Jan plays a Lester DeVoe (nylon strings), both are flamencas negras. The Lester DeVoe belonged to Tomatito.

OK, Andreas, I've added them. For Sanchiz Lopis I assume you meant Sanchis Lopez.

Yes. At 01:21am Sanchis Lopez sounds like Sanchiz Lopis ;-)

William Feasley plays guitars by Randy Angella. I know one is Cedar, but don't know the year(s).

Let's not forget Lars Jönsson, even though Hallgren is probably more common. ;)

I could talk to the Brazilian player Mateus Dela Fonte after his concert today, and he plays a Maurice Ottiger guitar with spruce top made in Switzerland.
