Carlos López Menares was born in Tiltil, a suburb of Santiago in January 14, 1950. He began his long road to becoming a luthier in 1969 when he went to work in the Tizona guitar factory making guitars, rebeles, vihuelas, lutes, and charangos. After 12 years at Tizona, where he learned how to use woodworking tools, and make stringed instruments, he opened his own factory, but due to circumstances beyond his control--particularly imports from China--it failed. Starting afresh, he began his career as an individual luthier, making classical guitars, repairing and restoring instruments, as well as building recreations of medieval instruments. With more than fifty years of experience, don Carlos has an international following, and is widely recognized as one of Chile's leading makers, whose guitars sell new for thousands of dollars. Nevertheless, he puts it "One does not stop learning, one always finds something that will help better one’s work, particularly by paying close attention to what professional guitarists want." This guitar is a reflection of that philosophy, as may be seen in this guitar in little details like its arm rest.
