Product Description

Santos Hernandez (Madrid, 1873-1943) started an apprenticeship very early in Valentin Viudes’s workshop and then moved to José Ortega’s Granadinian workshop. After moving to a few other workshops and serving as a soldier for Spain, he eventually took over Enrique Garcia’s position in Manuel Ramirez’s workshop in 1905.
His involvement in the building of Andrés Segovia’s famous 1912 Manuel Ramirez sealed his reputation as an extraordinary luthier. He opened his first own workshop in 1921 after having worked for Manuel Ramirez’s widow along with Domingo Esteso.

This fantastic 1921 Santos Hernandez is an absolute beauty. It has an authentic patina and a true pristine sound. The responsive warm and charming tone combines with incredibly deep basses and a perfect playability making it an incredibly fine instrument. The condition is very good with a few very well repaired cracks on the top. This guitar is a beautiful example of Santos Hernandez’ great ability to build instruments with a rich sound and finesse, that is often only found in his instruments.
