The Instrument's Family
The story of Raimundo Guitars goes back to 1968, when luthier Manuel Raimundo decided to set up his own guitar-making enterprise in Valencia, Spain. At first, he could only rely on his experience, his enthusiasm, and a small shop inherited from his family.
Since then, the brand has come to be recognized and revered around the globe, and has garnered many endorsements, recognitions, and awards for the quality of their instruments.
At the Raimundo workshop, the craftsmen take pride in declaring that no two guitars they ever make will be exactly the same. And despite constant improvements to their manufacturing process, their guitars remain fully artisanal, with handcraft being an essential part of every step.
Raimundo's greatest asset is precisely the passion and love that their artisans pour into their guitar building.
All of Raimundo's guitars are 100% made in Spain, following the traditional Spanish system, which confers great stability and durability to their instruments, and ensures a sound and finish consistent with the standards and aesthetics of this time-honored method.
