Jerónimo Peña was born in Marmolejo (Jaén) in 1933.
Coming from a very humble family, with 9 years old he was an apprentice carperter already. He started his career as luthier in 1950, being one of the best master luthiers in Spain nowadays. The “gold medal for the most commendable work” from the master luthier school of Gelves is only one of the many tokens of recognition he was awarded with.
His guitars have got a especially laborious cabinetmaking work, with splendid details in the “cabeza”, “roseta”, or “ouente” of the guitar… without forgetting about the wonderful sound quality all his guitars have.
