Pablo Requena

Pablo was born in Malaga, southern Spain where he was very influenced by Andalucían guitar makers which has meant that his guitars have a very strong Spanish character. As a maker he has been building classical and flamenco guitars for the last 20 years in a very traditional way inspired by the instruments made by Antonio Torres and Hermann Hauser.

He uses mainly hand tools and timbers that have been seasoned well in his workshop. His guitars are played by musicians that include Paul Gregory, John Mills, Jorge Cardoso, Javier Garcia, and the late Amy Winehouse amongst many others.

I deliberated for a couple of years before joining this guitar building course and can honestly say that is has been one of the most rewarding, fulfilling experiences of my life
