Upholding the guitar making tradition started by his family in 1744, Vicente Carillo is the 8th-generation luthier working in a small town of Casasimarro, a town known to have at least 200 guitar players. Vicente opens his small artisan workshop for guided tours in order to promote the quality, materials and techniques associated with guitar making. The tour begins in the lumber store, where visitors will witness the manufacturing process of guitars. Vicente has made guitars for famous musicians such as Spanish virtuoso Paco de Lucía, as well as Rolling Stones guitarists Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood in the past. The tour can be adjusted to suit visitors’ wishes.
