Antonio Raya Ferrer was born in Granada in 1980. He learned the art of guitar making from his father Antonio Raya Pardo at the age of 16 and began working in his father’s workshop, where he still works to this day. Guitar making is in Antonio Raya Ferrer’s blood. Not only is his father one of Granada’s most internationally renowned guitar makers, but his mother, daughter of Eduardo Ferrer, comes from a dynasty of guitar makers whose roots go back to none other than Benito Ferrer, who built the first guitar for Segovia. Antonio is a true perfectionist and not one to leave anything to chance. His guitars are handmade with high precision and excel with their powerful and pure sound.
This wonderful traditionally built guitar with a spruce top has a distinct personality. Not only does it meet all the requirements one would expect from a quality Spanish guitar, but it also has that little extra charm that makes it extremely delightful to play. The thinly crafted neck and perfect setup give the left-hand complete freedom, leading to a carefree playing experience. Overall, a great classical guitar from Granada, the pearl of Andalusia, with a clear tone, long sustain, and convincing volume.
