Juan Miguel González
Miguel González, father of Juan Miguel, started to build guitars in 1935 and was contemporary with Moya
Brothers, guitar makers from Almeria who learned the trade from Antonio de Torres, enabling his
undisputable mastery to set the foundations of a solid guitar-making tradition in the region of Almeria.
This tradition was inherited by his son, Juan Miguel González, who began to study this vocational trade from
a very early age at his father's workshop, thus entering the fascinating world of the Spanish guitar making,
and broadening the artisan legacy of his father. His work skilfully combines craft, innovation, technique,
dedication, and a lot of passion.
The noble materials used by Juan Miguel González to build his guitars -carefully selected and with a high
acoustic potential- are of exceptional quality. Most of these materials belonged to his father's original
workshop, and have now benefited from a careful ageing process aimed at obtaining the highest quality in
The entire manufacture process is made by hand, paying attention to every detail to ensure maximum quality
results. His latest studies on materials and guitar assembly have allowed him to develop a new "fan" system for guitar frame layout, entailing
great progress as far as aesthetics, sound and resonance are concerned, delivering unprecedented levels of musical performance.
