Please recommend me a Madrid style's luthier

Post by rtong77 » Wed Jan 25, 2017 1:58 am

Hi all, I'm looking for a guitar in the < 5000euro range.
My favorite guitarist is Andres Segovia and Angel Romero.
And The sound I like is well-rounded, deep basses and glowing trebles. The unique resonance of Spanish guitar!
So, I love guitar in Madrid.
Please recommend me a Madrid Style's luthier except Bernabe, Ramirez.
The luthier may not be in Madrid.

You should be able to find a nice used Manuel Contreras or Ignacio Rozas in your price range.

I second Ignacio Rozas. I had a friend that owned one that was beautiful. Make sure you check the scale length to make sure it's right for you.

Definitely a Rodriguez, you can read the label in some parts of the video. Ironically, it was made in Cordoba, not Madrid, but it has that classic Madrid sound. The Romeros were great friends with both Contreras and Rodriguez and played both extensively.

I am fond of the guitars of Rozas as well. A good friend has a great one from the mid 90s. Beautifully made and impressive by any standards A hell of a bargain under 10k IMO

I have used Teodoro Perez's Estudio model.
That sound is similar to tone I seek.
But some note make a weak sound or loud sound in treble, have a not well-rounded treble.
So, I'm not sure whether to buy a Perez's concert-level model.

I want to buy brand new guitar.
I want to tame new guitar to me.
How can I get a new instrument?
And how about Carlos Juan Busquiel or Rafael Aguirre requena?

Nothing wrong with buying new, so long as you know that you may not get as good a guitar for your budget than if you were open to looking at nice used instruments.

I have a client friend in Madrid (a professional player and recording artist) selling a collection of six special Ignacio Rozas guitars that were specifically made for him with selected timber quality - mainly from the period 2008-2009. There is at least one mint condition spruce and one mint condition cedar. The others are fine and have just normal playing marks. Price would be within your €5000 budget. I am happy to put you or any other enquirer in direct contact. Let me know if you wish to follow this up.
