Alberto Martin Ramos was born in Malaga in 1977. He began building guitars at the age of 15 working a self-taught builder, by taking apart his guitar. In his late teens, he apprenticed with the Chacon family in Malaga, makers both guitars and instruments in the violin family. At his workshop Alberto Martín Ramos uses traditional techniques of construction to classical and flamenco guitars in the very best Spanish tradition, to the highest standards of quality by using very carefully selected woods to meet the demands of professional players. His guitars are highly esteemed for their sonority and esthetic qualities. His guitars are in demand not just in Spain, but in France, Germany, USA, and Japan.
