Born in Madrid in 1904, Marcelo Barbero was an esteemed Spanish luthier, recognized for his exceptional craftsmanship in producing both classical and flamenco guitars. He started his journey in the craft under the tutelage of José Ramirez II, a well-known guitar maker from whom Barbero inherited a great deal of knowledge and technical skill. However, his style matured more closely aligned with that of Domingo Esteso and Santos Hernandez, two other legendary Spanish luthiers.

In 1943, the sudden death of Santos Hernandez led Barbero into an unprecedented position in the history of guitar making. Hernandez’s widow, Mathilda Ruiz, entrusted Barbero with the responsibility of completing her late husband’s pending orders. Consequently, Barbero found himself working in Hernandez’s legendary workshop at the iconic Aduana 23 address, where he had access to Hernandez’s tools and parts.

It was during this period that Barbero developed a deep understanding of Hernandez’s unique techniques and his previously undisclosed crafting secrets. His time at the Hernandez workshop significantly influenced his guitar-making style, contributing to his rise as an archetypal flamenco guitar builder. Barbero’s instruments were highly valued for their exceptional sound, lightweight construction, and visually pleasing aesthetics, all of which hearkened back to the craftsmanship of Hernandez.

Marcelo Barbero continued to refine and develop his skills, building guitars that became highly sought after by both classical and flamenco guitarists worldwide. His innovative approach and dedication to his craft have left an indelible impact on the world of Spanish lutherie. Even after his death in 1956, Barbero’s legacy continues to resonate, influencing generations of luthiers and musicians. His guitars remain highly coveted, appreciated for their exquisite tonal quality, craftsmanship, and historical significance.
