& Flamenco Guitars, Portuguese Guitarras, Requintos, Tres Cubanos,
Charangos and other Latin Ethnic Fretted Instruments--quality
instruments made in Spain, Portugal, California, Bolivia and Japan. In
addition to imported instruments, we also make and finish a small
number of instruments here in California. We are authorized dealers of
fine quality Kiwaya ukuleles. In California, Ron Fernandez refines the
frets and sets-up each instrument to professional standards (see
photoessay and 8 minute video on our set-up below). We
specialize in quality fretted instruments for working musicians and
devoted amateurs which are properly set-up to play easily and sound
good. Established in 1985.

Music was established in 1985 but my experience with Spanish luthiers
extends back to 1965 when my father and I started to deal with
guitarmakers from his homeland. Since the 1990's I have imported over
13,000 guitars and I have personally set-up the last 8,000 of them. See

ANNOUNCEMENT: Jeanette and I are "somewhat retired". We have not slowed down but rather have partially changed direction. We have stopped distributing to dealers. However, we continue to handle a small quantity of good instruments which I make, design, refurbish, set-up or French Polish and sell directly to individual players. The other part of my time is now spent on video and performing projects dealing with musical topics and preparing for our move to Anacortes, Washington in the fall (Ron Fernandez).
