The sound quality of the guitar depends on the guitarist’s fingernails, which must be hard enough.…
The guitar maker Miguel Garrido was born in 1959 in the working district of Villaverde in Madrid. He has cordobas roots since his mother was born in Córdoba and his father in Villanueva de Córdoba. They came to Madrid as many Andalusian families in the 50’s looking for a future to form a family.
Antonio, the father of Miguel, a precursor of the tradition, has been professionally dedicated to the carpentry trade, working the wood in all its forms since he was nine and becoming an incredible professional in this field. From a very young age, he began to be interested in the world of guitars, first playing the instrument quite well and then, as it could not be otherwise and for the affinity with his work, building them for pleasure.
He never professionally dedicated himself to making guitars for sale, but his outstanding professionalism in the world of wood made him build some exquisite guitars.
Master Miguel helped and accompanied his father ever since he can remember, and for many years, he assisted him in many of his projects, which helped him master the wood tools from an early age.
