Juan Hernandez Guitars

Juan Hernandez Iranzo was born in Turis (Valencia) Spain in the late 1940's. He began learning guitar making in the Francisco Esteve workshop at the age of15. There he became an "official" ( certified guitar maker) and later he became production manager of the Esteve workshop. For many years he has been involved with the construction of the deluxe models made at Esteve.

Now, along with the assistance of 3 artisans, he is proud to offer a limited number of fine guitars under his own label made of very good woods and constructed with care and expertise.

Juan's son has now joined his father and they are together making one of the finest ranges of guitars available today and are recognised world-wide.
