Pepe Romero plays Hijos de Melchor Moya


We recently had a visit from Pepe Romero, who came to play and tell us about one of the rarest guitars we’ve ever seen – an 1894 Hijos de Melchor Moya. Moya was a contemporary of Antonio de Torres, and over the years he and his brother and sons worked with and learned much from Torres.
