Buendia Guitars
Leonardo Buendia

With the perspective and experience of a performing musician, Leo Buendia began his career as a luthier in his hometown of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Years later, he moved to Oakland, California to specialize in the construction of high end steel string acoustic guitars in a three-year apprenticeship to the renowned Ervin Somogyi. Recognized as being one of the finest new guitar makers in the world today, Leo offers one-of-a kind custom guitars with the depth of sound and immediate response desired by musicians and guitar lovers around the world.

To be a luthier is to savor every single hour of every day as my instrument takes shape. I look forward to being among the innovative minds and hands at Holy Grail Guitar Show that are keeping the tradition of lutherie alive today.
