Edward Jones began his career in the 1960's as a harpsichord maker with Robert Goble, with whom he worked for six years. In the early 1970's, as indicated on the label of this guitar, he joined the David Rubio workshop where he was trained in guitar and lute making. In 1979, he opened his own workshop in Steeple Aston in Oxfordshire. This remarkable career and the quality of his work have enabled him to acquire a great reputation. This guitar built in 1970 testifies of this time, the work of lutherie and the remarkable sound qualities show the knowledge of this luthier, a very nice guitar to discover...
