Description

This guitar is the very first built in 2013 by the youngest "guitar personality" of the great Romero family. Bernardo started construction of this instrument in Granada, Spain with the assistance and watchful eye of Juan Miguel Carmona, then brought it mid-way through the build process back to San Diego, CA where he completed it with his uncle, Pepe Romero Jr. - both makers credited on the label. Not surprisingly, it has features of both the Granada school and of the Rodriguez/Santos influence of his uncles guitars. It boasts a big, bold sound, wide and full across all registers. The overtone content is rich yet controlled so that the fundamental remains very focused at the core of every note. Separation is excellent, attack is immediate and yet it also has great balanced sustain. Although used guitar, it is in excellent condition with only minor wear in the finish.

Background
Bernardo Romero, eldest grandson of Pepe Romero, Sr., 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. He began 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.
