Casa Arcangel Fernandez 1970’s – amazing sounding classical guitar from this famous shop in Madrid!
Arcangel Fernandez is considered one of the best guitar makers in history. He was born in 1932 and started his career as a carpenter. In 1954, he met the great guitar maker Marcelo Barbero, who was considered the best guitar maker in Madrid at the time and had worked with Santos Hernández. Barbero and Fernández are equally imposing figures in the world of guitar making. Arcángel Fernández’s work as a guitar maker, for example, is at the heart of what makes the typical modern flamenco guitar.
Fernández founded a shop with Manuel Rodríguez, which also sold a number of instruments made by other talented guitar makers. In 1959, Marcelo Barbero’s son joined him and they worked together for 40 years.
