Hello,

Does anyone on the forum have any experience or know someone who has experience with guitars made by Salvador Castillo? Is he a highly recommended luthier?

Thanks,

Hi, Salvador Casatillo is a very well known Luthier and his shop is in Paracho, Mexico. He specializes in Flamenco Guitars and won several 1st prizes
In National competitions back in 2001 and 2002. His guitars are very popular in the Flamenco community. His prices vary from 3,000 USD and up.
He also builds classical guitars. Regards

Hi,

I bought a used 7-string spruce top guitar of his a year ago or so. I'm no expert and can't describe sounds like you would a fine wine; but I like the guitar very much. It sounds very good to me and my teacher and its "playability" is very good as well. I bought it from someone who plays professionally (and sold it to help fund another guitar built by Castillo), so I think that might count as another thumbs up.

I know my answer has come very late, but I would like to take the time to fully recommend the guitars built by Salvador Castillo. I personally own an studio guitar built by him and it's an awesome instrument. The quality and sound are outstanding, plus the excellent service that you'd receive from Salvador Castillo during the quoting and acquisition process, as well as during the after-sale service.
