Sergio Valverde Castillo is the recent luthier winner of the First Prize of the "Antonio Marin Montero" guitar makers contest held in Granada, Spain in 2017.
What should a guitar have to be chosen as a winner by an expert jury made up of prestigious luthiers and professional guitarists?
What should an artisan do to be worthy of a prize in this category and be chosen as the best luthier?
Well the magic ... that some artisans look for a lifetime and they do not get it, and yet others, they imbue it in their guitars almost from the beginning, with the naturalness of their work and the only help of their hands.
This classical guitar, simple in appearance, is an exact replica of the winning guitar of this guitar contest, both in construction and in wood and materials. And it has what the jury has called so much attention, the magic of its sound, the beauty of its tone, endless sustain, and the playability and response of the best handmade guitars.
If you want to know why this young luthier has been awarded this prestigious prize, you just have to come and try his guitar, close your eyes and let yourself go.
