Bernardo Romero is the eldest grandson of Pepe Romero, Sr. He has been surrounded by guitar playing since birth and has grown up watching his uncle, Pepe Romero, Jr. transform beautiful woods into magnificent guitars. From early childhood Bernardo was talented in guitar playing and wood carving, but his love to guitar-making pushed him towards becoming a professional luthier. He started building his first guitar under the tutelage of Juan Miguel Carmona in Granada, Spain and completed it in San Diego with his uncle Pepe Romero, Jr. From the beginning Bernardo’s guitars have been masterful instruments and are used in concert by internationally acclaimed guitar virtuosos. His grandfather Pepe Romero has used Bernardo’s instruments in such prestigious venues as the Rheingau and Schleswig-Holstein Music Festivals.
