Ariel Ameijenda was born in Montevideo, Uruguay, in 1963, as the son of one of the country’s most famous guitar makers, Manuel Ameijenda. Ariel’s father learned this difficult art from one of Ignacio Fleta’s pupils: Juan Carlos Santurion. Ariel Ameijenda started to help his father in the workshop at a very young age young and he quickly developed great skills in different techniques of guitar making.
In 1997 Ariel Ameijenda opened his own workshop in Montevideo. He is now selling guitars and period string instruments to musicians all over the world. In 2014, Ariel moved to the heavenly settings of the Cerro de los Burros near the city or Piriapolis on the East Coast of Uruguay in order to respond to his growing list of orders and fully commit to the manufacturing of finest guitars.
This guitar is new and comes straight from Ariel’s workshop. It is a traditionally built cedar/Uruguayan blackwood guitar is both aesthetically gorgeous and very fine sounding. It has a bright brilliant tone, very open and warm. The generous volume and strong sympathetic resonances make the playing very immersive and give a great feeling of musical freedom. The instrument has a great overall sustain and is showing all the best qualities of a top-class concert guitar. The tuners are made by Gotoh. A hard-shell case is included. This guitar is Cites-free (CF).
