We have moved from Irvine, California and are now living in Anacortes (pop. 17,000) in Washington State. Anacortes is 90 miles north of Seattle, 90 miles south of Vancouver, British Columbia, and 2 hours by ferry from Anacortes to Victoria on Vancouver Island. Anacortes is on Fildalgo isalnd which is connected by a 1/4 mile bridge to the mainland.

I, Ron Fernandez, have personally done the set-up and fret refinement on each of these instruments. You can see what I do to each guitar at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iZOqW5S1NVM

Here is a current list of special instruments (December 4, 2016).  This page is continually under reconstruction. When I set up my video cameras I may put up videos of some of these instruments.

Esteve 3 Classical Guitar. 2012. Solid spruce soundboard with bearclaw character, rosewood fingerboard, laminated sapelli-mahogany back and sides. This guitar had cloudiness in the original factory finish on the back and sides. I removed most of the cloudiness and applied French Polished shellac. 652mm nut, 52mm nut width. Original price $795. Special price $600 with a case plus shipping ($56 to west coast, $75 to east coast). See Video on YouTube at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HfGtkX65mP4

Alhambra 11C Classical made in Muro del Alcoy Spain in 1981. Big Sound. Western Red Cedar Soundboard, Solid Indian Rosewood, ebony fingerboard. Jesus Jurado replaced the soundboard on this guitar. This guitar has a big sound like the Old Ramirez Concert guitars. $2000 with case. 52mm nut, 650mm scale.

Benito Huipe Guitar, made in Paracho, French Polished by Ronald Fernandez. (it took me 40 hours to finish this guitar over 6 month. This is the instrument shown toward the end of of our DVD Guitarmaking with Benito Huipe.  It has characteristics of both classical and flamenco guitar. It has clear flamenco tap plates. It has a clear big sound. Spruce face, really beautiful dense Palo Escrito back and sides, ebony fingerboard. 53mm nut, 650mm scale with good Mexican case. $2700.

Vicente Sanchis, Torres model 1903. 52mm nut,  644mm scale,  salon size body (90mm body depth, 350mm across lower bout). The string spacing at the saddle of the bridge is 60mm from 1st to 6th string--this is 2 mm wider than the Estve guitars which are 58mm.  Ebony fingerboard, laminated rosewood back. Original price $1195 with case.

Antonio Aparicio Classical with narrow nut. Prototypes. This guitar was made by Antonio Aparicio Jr. during time he spent in California a few year ago. I commissioned  a few guitars which he built and that I personally French polished and did the fret work on. This guitar has a 650mm scale, 48mm nut. Solid wood soundboard, ebony fingerboard, solid Indian Rosewood back and sides.  Very good sound. I should mention that Antonio Aparicio work in his family's guitar workshop in Spain for over 30 years. His father retired and he moved to California for a few years. His family made thousands of guitars for guitar shops in Madrid and for guitar dealers around the world. They were the actual factory/workshop which made guitars for other "Made in Spain" labels. Special price $1700. I have one with spruce face and another with cedar face which  are nearly finsished.

I am no longer exporting any instruments from the United States. While global shipping has greatly improved, other serious complications have emerged such as credit card fraud, new customs difficulties, shipping damage/liability. These problems make the risks too great.

As I have mentioned in other places on my website, I am semi-retired and therefore I am not longer selling to stores. However, I still have stock of certain items. Some items are first quality, some have cosmetic defects and I am therefore selling as seconds. I intend to continue handling certain items such as charangos, some ukuleles, a limited number of fine Spanish flamencos and classicals, refurnished Portuguese guitars and some other ethnic instruments.
