A brief backstory on Manuel:


"Manuel De La Chica (1911-1998) holds a special place in the legacy of guitar craftsmanship, particularly in Granada, Spain. His journey as a self-taught guitar maker exemplifies the dedication and passion that can lead to the creation of exceptional instruments.

In the 1930s, De La Chica embarked on a remarkable path by immersing himself in the art of guitar making. His fascination with the works of Santos Hernandez drove him to study and recreate Hernandez’s guitars, showcasing his commitment to preserving the tradition while also mastering the intricacies of the craft.

Having honed his skills through diligent study and hands-on practice, De La Chica later joined the workshop of Pepe de la Alhambra, where he further refined his techniques and absorbed the essence of guitar making passed down through generations. This experience undoubtedly contributed to the distinctive style that would become synonymous with his name.

In a pivotal moment, De La Chica established his own workshop, marking the culmination of his lifelong dedication to the art of guitar craftsmanship. His instruments carried forward the legacy of Santos Hernandez and other esteemed makers, displaying a deep reverence for tradition while also showcasing his personal touch.

However, challenges arose on his path. Health issues stemming from the occupational hazards of the trade forced De La Chica to retire in 1973. Despite this setback, his influence continued to echo through the instruments he had meticulously crafted over the years.

Today, the legacy of Manuel De La Chica lives on through the guitars that bear his name. These instruments are cherished by players, collectors, and enthusiasts alike, each one a testament to his unwavering dedication and lasting impact on the world of guitar making."
