Vicente Perez Camacho was bornin Madrid in 1928. Like so many guitar makers of his epoch he apprenticed first as a cabinet maker, beginning his working life when he was eleven. In 1952, he decided to apprentice with Modest Borreguero (1901-1969, one of the famous guitar makers to come out of the Manuel Ramirez workshop, who he had known since 1943. Vicente worked in Borreguero's small workshop on the Calle Desegano No 3 until he decided to open his own workshop in 1959 on Amparo No 3. He retired in 1992.  It has been played hard, and the finish has the usual nail marks and scratches that one might expect. There is a crack on the side that the owner had a luthier expertly repair 27 years ago. It plays comfortably, but there no room on the saddle for adjustment. This guitar is very much in the style of Santos Hernandez and Marcelo Barbero, very lightly built. It tremendously powerful flamenco, with a big voice and growl to match. Trebles sing, profound, full basses. It is the sort of instrument that any professional player would love.
