Every Raimundo guitar is 100% built in Spain, handcrafted in our workshop in Paterna (Valencia) following the TRADITIONAL SPANISH SYSTEM, under the strictest quality, stability and durability standards making them unique when compared with other guitars.
WHAT IS THE SPANISH TRADITIONAL SYSTEM?
It is a guitar making system unique to our country that has been in use for centuries by all Spanish luthiers. With this system the top is attached to the neck then the rest of the pieces are assembled around the instrument. During this process of the neck assembly is when the lower part of the neck remains inside the instrument attached to the sides with only a small noticeable part outside, creating this the “Spanish heel”.
WHY A SPANISH GUITAR WITH TRADITIONAL SYSTEM?
This system ensures a stronger construction of the guitar than using a “dovetail” joint, highly used in the furniture industry and guitars manufactured in other countries. It also also provides greater stability and durability of the instrument.
