Book Review: The Granada School of Guitar Makers

The Granada School of Guitar Makers
Andalusian guitar-makers have played a fundamental role in the configuration of what we call today the "spanish guitar". Andalusia is not the only piece of the puzzle but without the pioneering work of makers like Francisco Sanguino (Sevilla in the 18th century), the Pagés dynasty (18th and 19th) or José Pernas (Granada in the 19th century) - just to mention a few of the better-known ones - we would not understand the decisive contributions made by Antonio de Torres from Almeria.
