|Appraiser Comments:||Jerónimo Pena Fernandez was born in 1933 in Marmolejo Spain. He became a student of guitar maker Carlos Ramos in Barcelona and by 1967 he was building guitars full-time. His guitars are known for their beautiful tones and the ornate work on the bridge. They are very popular with world renowned flamenco guitarists, including Andrés Segovia. Pena is now retired, and no longer exports his guitars, preferring to make instruments for collectors.
Your 1982 Pena guitar is fast becoming a rarity, now that he is semi-retired. This makes the market in these instruments very strong, and growing stronger every day.
Since I am unable to examine this item in person, it is assumed for the purpose of this appraisal to be a 1982 Jerónimo Pena Fernandez guitar in very good condition, with one or two surface scratches and no other flaws whatsoever. The values given below are based on these assumptions.
