Amalio Burguet, The Story…
Amalio Burguet was born in Catarroja, a small village near the sunny city of Valencia in 1951.
From a very young age, he developed a great ability to make guitars by working in various workshops. It was in these workshops that he made his first guitar in 1966 and became an expert in series production.
However, he admired the guitars that were totally handmade, hand crafted in a one man workshop. Soon he resumed his musical training, years of conservatoire and began to look deeper into the most artisanal aspects.This involved studying the treatment of materials more in depth, especially the treatment of wood and the construction processes.
In 1984 he realised his dream, he opened his own workshop in Catarroja. It is here where he applies everything he has learned, making innovative high quality handmade guitars, at the same time affordable for everyone, students and professionals. In short, Amalio is the alma mater of the small family workshop. A whole life dedicated to the artisanal development of the instrument that he is obsessed by, the Spanish guitar.
Amalio Burguet has been in charge of his own workshop in Catarroja Spain for more than 50 years. He is tirelessly and constantly in search of ways to make the best possible guitars.
