The tradition of handcrafting guitars by the Carrillo family traces its roots back to 1744 in “Manchuela Conquense,” also recognized as Casasimarro. Since the 19th century, the town has been affectionately nicknamed “El pueblo de las Guitarras,” translating to “The Town of Guitars.” Vicente Carrillo, the seventh-generation luthier in the family, upholds this heritage by constructing these instruments in the same locale.

Acknowledging his remarkable craftsmanship, Vicente Carrillo was honored with the “Regional Craftsmanship Award” in 2009 and the “National Award” in 2010. His guitars are marked by a distinct sound, achieving a harmonious equilibrium between robust bass tones and melodic trebles. Continuously pushing the boundaries of innovation, Carrillo’s workshop employs diverse construction techniques, contributing to an ongoing evolution in the comprehension of the art of lutherie.

Internationally acclaimed artists, including Paco de Lucía, Tomatito, J.M. Cañizarez, El Niño Josele, Rafael Cañizares, Javier Limón, Keith Richards, and Josemi Carmona (Ketama), have all been associated with and played guitars meticulously crafted by Vicente Carrillo.

The legacy of Vicente Carrillo extends far beyond the instruments he painstakingly creates. Through his unwavering dedication to preserving and advancing the art of guitar making, he has become a standard-bearer for Spain’s cultural heritage. Carrillo’s workshop is not merely a physical space but a crucible of creativity and tradition, ensuring that the tradition of exemplary Spanish guitar craftsmanship endures for generations to come.
