vicente carrillo at savino music.
Coming from a family of broadly experienced guitar makers - such experience dates back to 1755 - Vicente Carrillo has managed to skilfully combine historical heritage with progress, also incorporating ideas and advice from renowned luthiers and internationally famous guitarists. Born and raised among guitars, he learned the trade naturally, yet he was always open to new contributions that would allow him to continue improving his work. In 2010, the Castillian-Manchegan luthier Vicente Carrillo won the National Crafts Award, a prize that recognizes the quality of consolidated works. Such recognition was awarded to him due to his broad and consistent trajectory, and to the great prestige he enjoys among the string instruments' professionals.
His New Generation of New Concept guitars, built with a ground-breaking internal system, are simply out of this world: power, clearness, timbre and balance like we have never seen before. Tradition and innovation come together to create a simply unique instrument.
In 2010, Vicente Carrillo was awarded with the National Crafts Prize for his long and coherent trajectory and for the prestige he holds amongst famous musicians. (Artists such as Keith Richards, Mike Oldfield and Alejandro Sanz and flamenco guitarists like Tomatito or Cañizares all make music with a Carrillo guitar). His most famous work of the last seven years was the construction of guitars branded with the name Paco de Lucía – flamenco’s most revered guitarist.
