World-renowned Musicians Performing with Candela's Guitars

So you are considering a guitar purchase from Tomas Delgado, owner of Candelas Guitars. You've heard great things about his family lineage and his instruments and you've heard that celebrity musicians play them. But, you ask, just how good are these instruments? Let's help. First, Tomas Delgado handcrafts each guitar instrument that is sold from the Candelas guitar shop in Los Angeles. He hand selects the finest woods from all areas of the world including Mahogany, Cedar, Port Ortford Cedar, Spruce, Palo Escrito (a Mexican Rosewood), Indian Rosewood, Brazilian Rosewood and many more. Second, you will not find a Candelas assembly line in Tomas' shop. Each guitar is individually handcrafted by Tomas and his luthiers thus producing the most brilliant sounds and tones you will ever hear. Third, for years, the best and most renowned musicians in the world have sought out, purchased and played with Tomas Delgado's guitars: Andres Segovia, the father of the modern classical guitar; Celedonio Romero, a great Spanish classical guitarist, composer and poet; Ray Sandoval; Los Lobos, Jose Feliciano, Jonny Polanco, Charo, Ozomatli, Quetzal, Dinastia Nortena, Grupo Exterminador, Mariachi Sol de Mexico, Arlo Guthrie, Jackson Browne, and so many more. And last, what other guitar luthier has one of its guitars enshrined in the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C.?
