Salvador Ibáñez (* 1854 in Valencia; † 1920) began his apprenticeship as a luthier in Valencia. In 1870 he founded his own workshop where he built guitars, ukuleles, and mandolins. In 1897 he built one of the first double-neck guitars. After his death in 1920, his two sons took over the workshop. This guitar was built around 1900. The spruce top is in impressive condition and has a little repaired crack below the bridge. Back and sides are made of rosewood (one repaired crack). The rosette and the bridge are decorated with mother of pearl inlays. The original tuners have been replaced. A hardshell case is included.
