Francisco Molina Camacho, or as everyone calls me, Paco. I specialized as a guitar builder in Granada in 2005, but it was in 1990 when I started to relate to the world of music. Together with Manuel Villafranca, one of the most reputable guitarists in Granada, I built my first guitar, I still keep it in my workshop.
During these years I have been working hand by hand in the construction of guitars, with different Spanish and foreign builders, which are tested and tested by professional guitarists. From each and every one of them I have learned different techniques and improvements in the construction of my guitars.
Always starting from the construction system Antonio Torres, along with the experience accumulated over more than 25 years, I have been including improvements to my guitars, to achieve maximum comfort and very good sound.
Based on the Torres system we gain the solidity and the specific sound of the traditional Spanish guitar, the care of the details in the construction improves it, and the choice of wood gives it personality and nuance.
My desire is that all the guitars are well built, that's why all the guitars are tested again and again until they have the perfect comfort and sound to be acquired by the guitarist without any problem.
In the workshop I build my guitars by hand, and together with my team of craftsmen we make the rest of the guitars, with the aim of offering a good guitar at the best possible price.
The guitars are built using the traditional Spanish system of Torres, but we use tools that provide us with precision when the tasks require it. Our production is small and stable, which allows us to offer guitars with very similar characteristics and with a high quality standard, and of course the guitars built entirely by hand by me.
Our construction system is always part of the Torres system but we are constantly studying improvements such as carbon fiber, which we already include in our construction process.
The construction is divided into 3 parts, the manufacture of the elements, the assembly of the elements to close the guitar, and the finish. Our methodology, quality control and cleanliness in all processes are very important to obtain a guitar of the highest quality.
10 YEARS OF CONSTRUCTION GUARANTEE
We are so sure of the quality of construction, that all our guitars enjoy a 10 year warranty from the date of purchase for any manufacturing defect that might arise in the instrument.
