Today’s #ThrowbackThursday post features the legendary Augustin Barrios.
We have a particular connection here as Ricardo Sanchis Carpio’s grandfather made guitars for him. We are fortunate to have two of his instruments, one classical and one flamenco, in the showroom currently as well as flamenco guitars by his two sons.
August has a classic offer as we’re discounting all our classical guitars as part of our 10th Anniversary offer.
We’ve timed the offer to give you chance to replace or upgrade instruments in time for the new school year as many of our instruments included in the offer are perfect for improvers.
Moreover, for the first time ever, we’ve included every classical guitar currently in our showroom; from our Orpheus Valley guitars, to our Southpaw Central range, to our sumptuous Spanish RSC guitar. So whether you’re looking for your first quality instrument, wanting to upgrade to something better, needing a professional grade guitar, or just wanting to treat yourself to something special this month is the perfect time to bag yourself a bargain.
As today is the European Day of Languages, we thought we’d take the opportunity to celebrate the wonderful European luthiers with whom we work.
One of the joys of working with British and European luthiers is that we get to know them personally, we visit their workshops, and even get to know their families. Something that can’t be done when instruments roll off an assembly line in the Far East.
Thank you, gracias, merci, danke, and tack to all our current luthiers: Ricardo Sanchis Carpio from Spain, John Catherwood from Ireland, Maurice Dupont from France, the UK-based Swiss Ruedi Egger, David & German Sanchis Lopez from Spain, Alan Miller from the UK, and Lennart Persson from Sweden.
We look forwards to continuing to working with them to bring you the best instruments in their respective genres.
