The guitar strings. A soul to take into account One of the fundamental parts in the…
The guitar maker Miguel Garrido was born in 1959 in the working district of Villaverde in Madrid. It has cordobesas roots, since its mother was born in the city of Cordova and its father in Villanueva de Córdoba. His parents came to Madrid as many Andalusian families in the 50’s looking for a future to form a family.
Antonio, the father of Miguel and the precursor of the tradition, has been professionally dedicated to the carpentry trade, working the wood since the age of 9, in all its forms, 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, for pleasure, building them.
He never professionally dedicated himself to making guitars for sale, but his great professionalism in the world of wood made him build some exquisite guitars.
The master Miguel helped and accompanied his father since he had reason, and afterwards and for many years helped him in many of his works, so his handling in the wood tools and in the work of the same has been since a very early age.
