Ron Fernandez is an authority on Flamenco/Classical guitars,
and has been deeply involved in Portuguese music. He is an excellent
luthier and a good friend. I play Flamenco Sanchis Negra and Blanca
guitars I purchased from him.
I also play TakamineTH-5C and a TC132SC guitars (the latter
configured as a Flamenco by special order); the best I have found for
plugged in performance (Palathetic pickup/CTP-2 Preamp). I use
Luthier Silver High Tension strings.
My first Flamenco guitar (1962) was made by my good friend the late
Rowan Hughes, who also created the painting of me on the main page
of this Website. Locally, Chris Jensen has performed excellent work
on my guitars, and I find Instrumental Music (Jaime) an excellent store
to work with.
Bill Davidson is a videographer
who produces great documentation
of recent festivales in Jerez, Cadiz,
Moron, etc., and makes his DVD's
available at very reasonable prices.

Marvin Steel portrays pure
Flamenco in his drawings and
paintings, and captures the
essence of the pure art.
