Back in 1970s, as a kid I started listening to a certain show broadcasted every Sunday evening on the radio. They were playing Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, B.B. King, Chuck Berry, and many others. I was fascinated by the sounds coming out of the speaker, and so my love for music and in particular for electric guitars was born. It did not take long, and I got my first guitar and I started to play myself.
Time passed, one day I listened to a vinyl called Texas Flood. I was blown away by the energy and the amazing tone of Stevie Ray Vaughan! From this moment on I wanted to know more about this sounds, about electric guitars and guys like Stevie, the 3 Kings and all the other cats.
I was in my early 20s when i dive in to show business, and soon, I worked as an owner of a catering company all over the world, for movies, for concerts, for a formula one racing team, and for many other cool events.
I’m grateful for all the amazing experiences and adventures I could be part of, also I got the chance to collaborate with several very talented artists of all kind over all those years, it allowed me to see behind the scenes, in a world full of creativity.
While I was on the road for work, sometimes I went spontaneously for a “guitar safari”, meeting some cool people, and I found some nice vintage guitars at the time. That was in the early 90’s and it was lots of fun.
Vintage guitars, often I imagine when these guitars were played long time ago, in jazz and blues clubs, its magic, and If I could just travel back in time…I would indeed.
Since my passion for vintage guitars has always accompanied me in the past, I decided to dedicate my time into what I love the most, and so I created Fandango Guitars.
Fandango Guitars is buying and selling guitars, amplifiers, and effect pedals from and to musicians, collectors, and aficionados, well selected and guaranteed authentic, exclusively what I would choose also for myself.
