Vicente Perez Camacho was bornin Madrid in 1928. Like so many guitar makers of his epoch he apprenticed first as a cabinet maker, beginning his working life when he was eleven. In 1952, he decided to apprentice with Modest Borreguero (1901-1969, one of the famous guitar makers to come out of the Manuel Ramirez workshop, who he had known since 1943. Vicente worked in Borreguero's small workshop on the Calle Desegano No 3 until he decided to open his own workshop in 1959 on Amparo No 3. During the 1960s Vicente sold his guitars, as did Borreguero for some years, through Garrido, one of the major music stores in Madrid for many years. Vicente retired in 1992.  Thismaple flamenco guitar is one of those sold through Garrido. It bears the signed, dated, and stamped Casa Garrido label ("Artesano Constructor Vicente Camacho para Casa Garrido"). The choice of maple is not as unusal for flamenco as it might appear. Until the 1930s, maple was the top choice for a fine flamenco guitar, and only fell out of favor because during the depression, few could afford it, and local cypress was much cheaper. The guitar was originally built with a highly-figured "bearclaw" two-piece face, which appears to have suffered damage, and a piece on the treble side was replaced. This work was so cleanly done that there is no trace of the repair other than the difference in refraction between the original top and the replacement piece. There are no other cracks repairs, or issues. The guitar has recently been re-polished entirely in lacquer and set up by master luthier German Vasquez Rubio, at which time a center-line separation below the bridge was repaired. The finish is flawless. Mechanical tuners appear original.
