The reason why the one on the right made me think of a Bernal. The only other possibility I could think of which would be a better fit with the other guitars on this list was maybe an early Paulino Bernabe?..

Seems that nobody has either knowledge nor interest in the quiz.


As i only recognised the Conde at 11 o'clock and Reyes at 1 o'clock, and guessed maybe Ramirez at 3 o'clock I didn't think it was worth responding. I'm pretty sure I would recognise Gerundino since a friend of mine has one and lent it to me for a couple of months, but from the detail rather than silhouette, so didn't get that one.

I enlarged the one second up on the right- I’ve seen it before, but I can’t remember the name of the maker. I’m pretty sure it’s an Andaluz based maker. I sent the enlarged photo to a guitar maker in Spain and he said he recognized it too, but couldn’t place the name. I really can’t see the one second up on the left very clearly.

The one on the left is by Rafael Lopez Porras de Cádiz, pupil of José Romanillos. Much better known than you might think.

Very interesting, I haven't come across Rafael López Porras before. Also thanks for doing this quiz btw Morante - I've been stuck at home recovering from an operation the last few days and it has been a fun way to pass the time.

2nd on right is de Mario Melero, a renowned guitarrero from San Fernando, Camaron had several of his guitars and there is one in a glass case in the Peña de Camaron.

This one has an important history in Cadíz: it belonged to Eugenio Salas, "El Niño de la Rizos". Eugenio took it to America when he was hired by Caracol. I was a friend of Eugenio and the guitar ended up with me.

Oscar Lagos is one of the best young tocaores in Cádiz and a good friend. He used to visit me to play the Gerundino, but fell in love with the Melero. Everybody who plays it falls in love with it. Some guitars are así.

After a while, I decided that this guitar should be in the hands of a good gaditano, rather in the hands of a guiri, and passed it to Oscar. He treats it like it deserves to be treated.

Ole! That’s really cool!
