Born in Aldeire, Granada in 1965, Juan Fabian LaBella Manjon took courses at the INEM that introduced him to guitar making. He then apprenticed with Jesus Bellido. In 1995, he began building his own guitars. Unlike many makers, Juan's prefers to build entirely by hand-- using virtually no power tools. He does so, despite this being more time consuming, because it allows him to fully control each and every one of the steps in the construction process. He uses only the best quality materials, and his guitars are french polished with an improved shellac that which is the result of much study and numerous tests, and which is more resistant to scratches and abrasions, and so offers increased protection, without altering the quality of sound. This particular guitar has some of the finest quality spruce I have seen. The top is perfectly quarter sawn, revealing the ghostly shimmer of its medullary rays. This is spruce has been obviously aged for many years as it possess not only outstanding clarity, but the transparency of sound that comes with age. The European tiger stripe maple similarly is of the highest quality-- of the sort that a fine violin maker would choose.  The guitar sings in every register. It has superb dynamic range, great sensitivity, wonderful palette of colors, with all the power and presence one might ask for. The set up is very comfortable, making it a joy to play.
