Originating from Canada, John Ray came to Granada in 1989 to learn the profession of a guitar maker. He was able to learn a lot from the local luthiers, especially from the German guitar builder Rolf Eichinger, who had emigrated to Granada as well, to commit himself to guitar making. Furthermore, John restored a lot of guitars made by great masters, as for example Miguel Rodriguez, Vicente Arias, Manuel Ramirez and Salvador Ibañez. Today his guitars are well known among professional guitar players.
This beautiful Concert Model from 2017 is based on a 1943 Hauser, combined with the master’s own approach for a versatile sound with tonal beauty. The top is made of spruce, the back and sides are made of Indian Rosewood. The sound is pleasantly warm and mellow with exceptionally round and carrying low mids. All French-polished. The tuners are made by Rubner. A hard-shell case is included.
