The Spanish luthier Santos Bayon Ruiz is the grand nephew of Santos Hernandez and continues to work in Santos Hernandez actual workshop which he inherited from his father, Feliciano Bayón, a talented luthier in his own right. I believe that Santos is among the finest guitar makers currently working in Spain. This handmade concert classical guitar is a faithful copy of a Santos Hernandez instrument, built using Santo's own forms. The rosette, with its mother-of-pearl inlays, is also one that Santos employed in some of his guitars.  I have a number of original Santos Hernandez guitars in my own collection, and Bayon's Santos Hernandez model compares well with them. It is a superb instrument that whose tone is instantly recognized as that of Santos Hernandez. The trebles are concentrated, intense, and possess a crystalline clarity. The mid-range is likewise vibrant and full bodied. The basses are firm, resonant, and crisp. The guitar has concert volume, great presence and projects even when played softly.
