Eminent Argentine guitar historian, Ricardo Muñoz (1887-1968) researched for years on the many aspects of constructing guitars. He studied the instruments of the Spanish and European masters. He studied the woods used and the vibrations they exhibited-something that today's luthiers do quite frequently. He ultimately designed a sonorous model constructed with all native woods. His ground breaking research is held within.
