Santos Bayon is the great nephew of one of the most well known guitar builders in the history of the profession--Santos Hernandez. Hernandez's death, his widow employed Marcelo Babero (a famous builder in his own right) to complete her husband's unfinished guitars. She would eventually hire her nephew Feliciano (Santos' father) to work for her. Santos Bayon grew up in this very same shop learning the trade of guitar building from his father. Today Bayon is a revered guitar builder and makes one of the best Santos Hernandez copies available.
