Biography from the Web
Rafael Moreno (b. 1954) began making guitars at the early age of 12, learning under the watchful eyes of both Manuel Lopez Bellido and Antonio Marin. In these early years, he also studied with Eduardo Ferrer, who some consider a ‘teacher of teachers,’ as he has taught other renowned luthiers, including the aforementioned Antonio Marín. In addition to this direct tutelage, he is also heavily influenced by the guitars of Miguel Rodríguez, Santos Hernandez, and Benito Ferrer. After years of apprenticeship, Moreno opened shop in the famous Cuesta de Gomerez, in Granada, where he remained until the year 2000. He has since been working at the Jesus and Maria 10 address.
