Description

Javier Cayuela was born in 1927 in Andújar (Jaén), southern Spain to a guitarist, Juan Luis Cayuela Callejas. Wanting to play like his father, but having no money to buy an instrument for himself, he built his first guitar in 1949. As he continued to develop his craft, he took advice from several of the best luthiers in Spain including Miguel Rodríguez, Manuel Reyes and José Ramírez. In February 2012, the Andújar City Council, in recognition of a lifetime dedicated to guitar crafts, honored Javier Cayuela with a street name in the municipality. The workshop continues to this day as the craft had been handed down first to his son Juan Luis Cayuela Bachiller (also a performer) and grandson, Moisés Cayuela Rubio.

This particular guitar was previously owned by Pepe Romero, and is one of Cayuela's top models featuring additional inlay work (including herringbone purfling in the top, back, sides and back center seam, as well as a charming "treble clef with eighth notes" inlay in the heel). It has a warm, and rich Andalusian sound with plenty of volume for any concert setting and is very comfortable to play. Apart from two thin "finish cracks" in the upper bout of the guitar (these do not go into the wood, they are only in the finish) the guitar is in excellent condition with almost no wear. These guitars rarely appear on the market, especially a deluxe model like this with great provenance so this is a real treat to be able to offer this instrument.
