Casimiro Lozano is today one of Spain's premier guitar builders who has had great success in America because of the superior traditional methods he uses to create his beautiful instruments inspired by Ignazio Fleta. Casimiro Lozano Carrillo was born in 1954 in Casasimarro. As a young man he began to frequent the workshop of Vicente Carrillo, then under the direction of his widow Gabriela Casas. In 1969, he started a long apprenticeship with the 16 guitar makers employed there. Eventually he became the foreman of the shop, and In 1992, he moved into his own shop where he works alone to this day.

This 2001 guitar is in excellent condition. So this is a chance to have a spruce top instrument that has the advantage of age, allowing the soundboard to open up its resonant potential, while being in great physical condition.
