Tomas and his staff of seasoned luthiers repair guitars with the same care and expertise of a new mint guitarAs Tomas Delgado recounts it today, he benefited from his fathers rules and teachings. He got to experience the way his father - and grandfather - built guitars, the different approaches to repair, wood selection, and the ways in which they would achieve certain tones with certain guitars. It was that luthier foundation and family history that has enabled Tomas to adapt to a successful modern day product strategy and guarantee business survival well into the 21st century.
