Salvador Ibañez, was born in 1854 and active as a luthier in Valencia in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. In 1883, he set up a factor in Valencia. And being a man of determination, starting in a modest workshop, he slowly built his business at the expense of his competitors into the largest guitar factory in Spain. By 1900, his factory employed 100 workers and produced 36,000 instruments a year. After his death in 1920, his two sons, Vicente (d.1950) and Salvador (1887-1967), took over the firm; and, the business continued under his sons until 1933, when it was sold to Telesforo Julve Jordan. Vicente died in 1950; Salvador in 1967. During its existance address associated with the firm included (1865) Muela 23; (1870) Cubells 11; (1892) Ruzafa 8; (1896) Bajada de San Francisco 23, 27; (1897 Bajada de San Francisco 27 and Hospital 16; (1898) Bajada de San Francisco 23 and Padre Rico 6; (1929-1933) Padre Rico 6. Among those he trained or worked for him were Andres Marin and Salvado Gaspar. This guitar was made when he still had a small workshop at Ruzafa 8. This guitar has been restored and is in excellent, playable shape, and rewards the player with a sensitive, colorful palette of rich sound.
