Manuel Cáceres was born in Badajoz in 1947.
He started building guitars in 1963, when he started working in “Casa José Ramírez”, where he would spend fifteen years (nine of them as an important journeyman).
In 1978 he left this workshop and decided to work on his own, teaching in Mexico or Puerto Rico, being awarded several times.
He started working with the master luthier Árcangel Fernández in 1998 in a workshop located in 26 Jesus y María Street, where he would collaborate in the process of guitar making until retiring in 2010.
He currently continues working in 14 Jardines Street, in Madrid.
