I’ve often noted that most guitar makers are either frustrated guitarists or the sons of guitar makers. But Teodoro Perez started making guitars because in Franco’s Spain he needed a job at 13, and his father happened to see that a certain guitar maker needed an apprentice. That guitar maker was Jose Ramirez III and Teodoro went on to make Ramirez guitars for over 20 years before venturing out on his own. He now works with his son, his daughter and her husband in a small shop in Madrid.

Here’s Teodoro telling us his story of how he got his start at Ramirez.
