Anselmo Solar Gonzalez – A student of Santos Hernandez

An amazing guitar from the hand of an excellent craftsman!
Anselmo Solar Gonzalez was born in 1918 in Valle de Nalon. As luthier he was already winning prizes at expositions for his guitars in 1938. Short time after he moved to Madrid and went to work with the great Santos Hernandez. There he could further improve his skills.
After the death of Santos Hernandez he continued to build guitars for Hernandez’s widow together with Marcelo Barbero until 1948.
The sound of this guitar is bold and proud. It has a very clear and detailed tone – every single note rings out clear and in the most beautiful timbres you can imagine.
