Dario García is the son of Antonio J. García, who learned the craft of guitar making from two of Granada’s most noted and influential luthiers, Paco Santiago Marín and Rolf Eichinger. The influence of the Granada school is noticeable in his work, but of course he also adds his personal touch to each and every instrument he builds. Dario creates guitars of various designs for both classical and flamenco guitars and is always keen to combine the best possible materials with detailed workmanship.
The guitars coming from his workshop all have a classical design that follows the Spanish tradition of the 20th century. Nevertheless, Dario García occasionally integrates modern features such as double sides to improve the projection and bearing capacity of the tone.
Darío García built this elegant guitar as a faithful copy of the Santos Hernández guitar from 1924, which belonged to Andrés Segovia and was donated by Segovia to the Victor Espinós Music Library in Madrid, where it is still preserved today. This beautiful instrument is made of fine spruce and stunning African rosewood. It is characterised by its light weight due to the thinly crafted woods. When playing, the sound of the instrument is surprisingly powerful with a present harmonic content. A truly inspiring guitar that has a charming vintage timbre that is rarely found in new instruments.
