The Spanish Guitar
In an age when the top steel string guitar makers are outsourcing much of their production to the Far East, it's remarkable that the Spanish makers still maintain their traditional workshops and factories. It's even more remarkable that they produce instruments most of us can afford without taking production out of Spain.
Not Only Spanish Guitars
I won't dwell exclusively on the Spanish guitar as there are some excellent guitar builders in Japan, the UK, USA, South America and Europe. I'll be keeping up with developments from all corners of the world.
