Bernard Martin was born in Stuttgart in 1954. He moved to Granada in 1976 to learn the art of guitar making in the master workshops of José Lopez Bellido and Antonio Durán, and under the guidance of Eduardo Ferrer. Bernd Martin was the first German to settle in Granada and has been known for the quality of his instruments ever since. He also won the first prize at the prestigious “Concurso Nacional de Lutheria” (National Guitar Competition) organized by J. L. Romanillos in 1999.
