José A. Fuentes guitars

José A. Fuentes is born in Barcelona in the year 1971.José A. Fuentes

After working for more than 15 years as a carpenter, his passion for music and his talent when treating wood made him begin a new stage as guitar builder in a self-taught way, studying the construction systems of great guitar makers in history as Santos Hernández, Antonio de Torres, Miguel Rodríguez … and experimenting with new ideas and contributions that have led him to be one of the best guitarists of the current scene.

 

His instruments reflect part of his personality, simple, elegant and minimalist always running away from the excesses of decoration, and using for the construction carefully selected woods and a long process of drying and curing.
