Miguel Company was born in Conselle, a village near Palm, Mallorca in Spain in 1905. He apprenticed to a maker of violins and guitars in Palm. In 1926, he moved to Havana, Cuba where he establish his own workshop, and became Cuba’s foremost luthier, serving as the official luthier of both the the national orchestra in La Habana and Cuban National Folk Orchestra. He fled Cuba in 1962 and settled in Miami. His classical guitars were played by artists such as Manuel Barrueco. He died in 1975. 

This guitar made in 1940 immediately reminds ones of the fine guitars made by Miguel Simplicio in the 1920s and 1930s, and and is a tour de force that demonstrates Miguels skills as a luthier. In 2012 the guitar was reconditioned by a german luthier who made a new saddle, and inserted small wood part (about 3 x 11 mm). There are a couple of thin cracks below the bridge 2 very thin cracks from about 70 and 100 mm. The neck is straight.
