He was in the first ¨wave¨ of foreigners who came
to Granada in 70´s and 80´s and who mainly learned their kraft
from Antonio Marin Montero, the others were Van Der Horst,
Baarslag and Martin.
When I visited Granada in 1989, Liza Hurlong (AKA Liza Granada)
told that it took almost double time for Jonathan to build a guitar
than for the others not because he was slow but because
he was so extremely meticulous.
His guitars were also a bit more expensive than others
and had a very high star amongst my collegues (this is in 90s).
His sound world was often commented to be spanish with english refinement.
I would have bought one before I began to build myself
but sadly heard that had quit guitar building and was now in piano bizz.
I saw one on sale some years ago for rediculously low price
and would have bought but at that time I was trapped with all too many guitars.
I think he never got the recognition he would have deserved.
