Jose Salinas was born in Almería in 1974. Son of one of the best cabinetmakers of his city, he grows in an environment surrounded by wood and crafts and at the age of 16 he starts working in his father’s workshop where he learns the craft with him for more than seven years.

This passion for craftsmanship and wood, together with his profession as a flamenco singer, arouses interest in the construction of the Spanish guitar.

In 2014, he began his career as a guitar maker, uniting his two great passions, music and wood.

In the world of luthería he has been able to share knowledge with great guitar makers, especially with Andy Marvi, Javier Castaño, Alfredo Mate, Arcadio Marin, from whom he learned great secrets of this beautiful craft and to which he is very grateful.
