THE SANTOS MARTINEZ 'RAYMOND BURLEY' AWARD WINNING SIGNATURE GUITAR IS NOW AVAILABLE
The Santos Martinez 'Raymond Burley' signature guitar is now available and can be ordered through most high street music shops.
My long standing friends at Ivor Mairants Musicentre, in central London, always carry my signature guitar, which you can see at www.ivormairants.co.uk

The Santos Martinez version of the guitar is fantastic, the attention to detail is remarkable and the quality of the chosen woods is superb. The neck shape is itentical to the original guitar and is therefore beautifully comfortable to play. The volume level and sustain are both excellent and, of course, these will only improve further with continued playing. The purchase price of £649.00, which includes a plush hard case, is an absolute bargain.
Update 22nd Nov
I’m very pleased to announce that the Santos Martinez ‘Raymond Burley Signature Guitar’ recently won the accolade ‘Best Classical Guitar of the Year’. The awards were hosted by MIA (Music Industries Association) in partnership with NAMM (the National Association of Music Merchandise) and sponsored by the British classical music radio station Classic FM.
A celebration dinner was held at the Emirates Stadium in London on Thursday November 22nd; unfortunately I was unable to be there as I had a concert with 4 Parts Guitar in Aldershot that night.
I’m very grateful to Dennis Drumm and staff at JHS for their hard work and dedication in bringing such a fine instrument onto the market and also to my good pal and playing colleague Gordon Giltrap for initially bringing the idea of cloning the Martin Fleeson guitar (the instrument on which the signature guitar is based) to the attention of JHS. The ‘Raymond Burley Signature Guitar’ deserves success and it’s good to have my faith in the instrument confirmed and recognised by the music industry as a whole.
Above is a picture of Gordon Giltrap who is endorsing my JHS signature guitar.
I will eventually be posting some clips of me playing the guitar on YouTube.
I congratulate Dennis Drumm, Paul Smith and the rest of the team at JHS for their expertise and enthusiasm.
