Agustín Andrés was an important maker in Madrid at the beginning of the 20th century who perhaps is best know for having made a guitar that Agustin Barrios Mangore owned and played for a number of years. He had his workshop between 1903 and 1907 was at calle D. Manuel Fernández y Gonzalez No. 7.  Both Manuel Rodríguez Pérez (1887-1958),  the founder of Rodriguez guitars,  and Julián Gómez Ramírez (1879-1943) who went on teach Robert Bouchet, apprenticed with him. Around 1908, like Julián Gómez Ramírez, Andrés moved to Paris opening a shop on the Rue de Pateaux, No. 7. This guitar has been repaired recently by the Finish luthier Sami Koivisto. He repaired cracks to the top and to one side, reglued the bridge, and leveled the frets. Otherwise, this guitar is entirely original. It has not been refinished, nor have any parts or components been replaced. Because these repairs have been done, the guitar is very comfortable to play, and in excellent condition.
