The Spanish guitar maker Ricardo Sanchis Carpio is the head luthier of the Hermanos Sanchis Lopez firm in Valencia that was founded by his grandfather, Ricardo Sanchis Nacher in 1915.
The founder having worked for guitar makers in Valencia for sometime, went to Madrid where he was befriended by Manuel Ramirez and Domingo Esteso. To perfect his craft, he remained in Madrid working for Domingo Esteso on Sundays for three years. As a result, the Sanchis family has had close relationships with Esteso, and with his heirs, the Hermanos Conde, ever since.
Ricardo Sanchis Carpio learned from his grandfather and continued to develop, so that his guitars finally became world famous.

When you look at the pictures you may think thats a beaten up guitar and yes it definitaly is. But let me tell you: The beaten up guitars are often the best sounding ones.
An here it is exactly the case … the cedar/cypress combination on this guitar is just explossive. It has a great attack combined with huge volume and a warm cedar touch. This guitar sings and it is a joy to play it.
All repairs on it are stable. It has been checked and the guitar is well adjusted. Now it is ready to go.
