Born in the Albaicin in Granada, Francisco Javier Munoz Alba has learned from some of the great Granada builders, including Francisco Manuel Diaz, Victor Diaz, Rafael Moreno and Antonio Marin Montero. This guitar clearly demonstrates Alba's great attention to detail and his beautiful craftsmanship. Lightly constructed in the Granada manner, it offers sweet, beautiful trebles combined with compelling warmth and fullness. This is a guitar with a distinct personality.
