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 guitar built by Santos Hernandez in 1931 is absolutely fantastic. Its tonal richness definilty concurrences the best modern guitars and the sweetness of its sound is deeply charming. This very poetic instrument is really one of a kind. The true and delightful trebles have a magnificent timbre and the deep dark basses have a very Spanish spontaneity that makes the classical guitar such a special instrument. It is in good condition with six very well repaired cracks on the top and a few undetectable hair-line splits on the sides. The label is hand signed by Santos Hernandez and the tuners are original. This Santos Hernandez guitar not only is a collectible instrument but also a great concert guitar.
