Marcelo Barbero guitars

Marcelo Barbero is regarded as one of the most important flamenco guitar craftsmen ever.

After Santos Hernández’s death, his widow, Matilde Ruiz, ordered Marcelo Barbero the making
of Santos’ unfinished guitars before his premature death in 1943, thus employing the
workshop and tools located in 23 Aduana Street, Madrid.

Thanks to that, Marcelo learned and
discovered some little tricks secrets Santos had when making his guitars, becoming his only
disciple and apprentice, even if just indirectly.

This is why Barbero’s guitars after this time are
the most valued by instrument collectors all around the world.

This guitars stand out for their light weight and outstanding acoustic response, quick and accurate, but also full of flamenco character.
