Here are a few photos and a beautiful performance video of Ariel Ameijenda’s new guitar which he recently finished building for us. With a shimmering Uruguayan Blackwood back and sides and a warm cedar top, this guitar is a treat for the eyes and – as the performance below demonstrates – just as so for the ears. The video features Uruguayan guitarist Horacio Reyes Páez performing Prelude No. 1 by Heitor Villa-Lobos and Canción del Abuelo by Atahualpa Yupanqui. We’re looking forward to getting another one of his instruments into the showroom and playing it for ourselves!

    Marvelous. Very delicate touch and sensitive.

    Mr . Paez’s playing is truly a revelation combining great effortless technique with impeccable musicality .
    His performance of the Villa Lobos prelude was a revelation as if I heard it for the first time . A superb
    musician . Ariel’s guitar is beautiful but it did not have any unique or remarkable qualities . I don’t intend this to be
    derogatory but level of cratmanship is now so great that I am hard pressed to pick this guitar over so many
    others . It’s not a Simplicio but who’s are ?

    Soft and powerful guitar and performance, I thought the bass strings held exceptional sustain.
