Santos Hernández, (1873-1943) was one finest luthiers building classical and flamenco guitars in Spain. He was a secretive man, he never shared his knowledge of construction anyone except his wife, Matilde Ruiz Lopez, who though not a guitar maker, learned much of the theory of construction from him. After his death, she employed Marcelo Barbero for a short time to finish up guitars her husband left partially built. Eventually, she hired her nephew, Felicano Bayon (1922-1997) to work for her, and continued to build guitars under the label Vda de Santos Hernandez. Following her death in 1955,  Feliciano Bayón inherited his uncle's workshop. An intelligent man, Felianco became a great guitar maker in his own right not only by studying the classical and flamenco guitars left to him by his uncle, but by carefully and methodically observing the many fine instruments brought to him for repair-- guitars by such famous guitar makers as Antonio de Torres, Enrique Garcia, and Hermann Hauser. The boca doble guitar is designed to maximize the active area of the soundboard, and so to increase the volume, and response. This guitar is in excellent condition, save for a some scratches in the finish on the back, and a little fret wear.  An mp3 sound sample played by the owner is available upon request.  PLEASE NOTE THIS GUITAR IS IN SPAIN, AND IS PRICED IN EUROS.
