Manuel de la Chica was a Granada maker(1911-1998). Like many Spanish guitar makers, Manuel de la Chica began as a cabinet maker. He did this work until the late 1930s, when he decided to build guitars. Already familiar with tools, woods, and having studied a little about acoustics, without any apprenticeship, he began to copy the guitars of Santos Hernandez.  In time, however, he began to evolve his own designs. Among his disciples are Antonio Lopez of Paris,  Francisco Manuel Diaz of Granada, and Pedro Maldonado of Malaga. Manuel de la Chica retired in 1973 due to poor health. His guitars were played by Andrés Segovia, Celedonio Romero, Luis Sanchez, Manuel Cano and Sebastian Maroto. This handmade concert classical guitar is in excellent condition aside from slight scratches on the top below the sound hole, some visible nail marks, and a string burn behind the first string. The set up is standard, 4mm at 12th fret, 6th string, 3mm on 1st string. Although the present set up is very comfortable, there is sufficient bone in the saddle to adjust the action if needed.
