Andres Dominguez Guerrero is a luthier in Sevilla, Spain who was born in Jerez de la Frontera in 1947. As a young man he was drawn to the guitar. At the age of 12, he debuted as a flamenco guitarist at the La Pañoleta en Jerez, where he rubbed elbows with great flamenco artists such as Fernando Galo, Romerito de Jero, and El Niño Jero. His love of the instrument, however, eventually drew him into building.
In 1965, he began an apprenticeship with the luthier Manuel Ortega Sousa in Sevilla. Under his tutelage, Andrés honed his skills as a guitar maker, and in 1970 established his own workshop. Andres Dominguez stature among Spanish luthiers is such that Luis F. Leal Pinar devotes an entire chapter in "Guitarreros de Andalucia" (2004) to him. His handmade classical and flamenco guitars are based on the designs of Santos Hernandez. The sound he seeks in his guitars is one that is both focused and sweet. As he builds entirely by hand using traditional techniques of construction, his production is limited to about 15 guitars a year.
