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. There are five well repaired cracks on the spruce top. Back and sides are made of rosewood. The rosette and also at the center of the head stock are decorated with mother of pearl inlays. The original tuners have been replaced. The guitar is in incredible condition for its age.
