Background

This instrument was one of six guitars from Pepe Romero's personal collection that were featured in a memorable event in the GSI showroom on June 1, 2013. These 7 instruments were chosen in particular since they are the key guitars that have most influenced his son, luthier Pepe Romero Jr., over the course of his life, both before and during his activity as a luthier. The guitars were presented by Pepe Jr. and played by none other than maestro Scott Tennant. This was about as personal a connection with these absolutely historic guitars as one could get, with background stories and information provided by Pepe Jr. who has studied these guitars intimately (and literally lived with them). And to have them played by Scott Tennant in a great-sounding intimate space made this a once-in-a-lifetime concert. Click here to see photos of the event.
