The Instrument's Family

The prestigious Esteve workshop is located in Valencia, Spain, a sunny southern European city on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea.

Founded in 1957 by Francisco Esteve, Manuel Adalid, and Antonio Monfort, the Esteve workshop considers its premier asset to be their team of over 50 devoted artisans. Each of these craftsmen has years of training and experience, loves the guitar, and takes pride and pleasure in every instrument they help produce.

In recent years, the company has been directed by Manuel Adalid Jr., who has brought many new techniques and ideas to Esteve’s designs and construction, raising the company’s name to a new level of world-wide recognition and prestige. Their instruments are appreciated around the world for their excellent sound, first-rate materials, and beautiful details.

Today, Esteve continues to take great pride in producing classic Spanish guitars that incorporate innovative construction details while respecting the traditional Spanish method of guitar-building, which includes integrated neck-body construction and fan bracing. They have found another production sweet spot by combining traditional manual craftsmanship with modern techniques that facilitate the construction process.

They are truly “guitars with a Spanish soul,” which inspire guitarists around the world, and support them in their craft with the purity and magic of their sound.
