Guitar makers since 1945
Camps Guitars was founded in 1945 with the aim of making an instrument adapted to the specific needs of every musician. His founder Juan Camps decided to enrol in guitar manufacturing because of his enthusiasm for music, especially guitars, and wood craftsmanship. Nowadays, his sons Jordi and Javier Camps, who at a very early age already showed great interest for the handcrafted trade working and learning from their father at the firm, manage the firm. Over more than 70 years of experience guarantee our commitment for the craftsmanship and quality of their products. In order to keep the quality and craftsmanship standards, all our products are produced in our workshop located in Girona (Spain) and according to traditional methods used for centuries by important Spanish luthiers like Antonio Torres.

The construction of Spanish guitars requires an intensive labour of craftsmen selecting and sawing woods, assembling, polishing and finishing, which can only be carried out by high qualified staff and under a rigorous quality control overall the whole process. Therefore, our luthiers check and supervised the quality on each step of the process. Furthermore, all our professional workers have a solid experience in the craft of constructing guitars, and the firm promotes their training.
