Son of an Andalusian luthier, Rodolfo Camacho Viera was born in 1887 in Montevideo, Uruguay. He moved to Buenos Aires in 1904. This guitar dates from 1934.

Barrios, said of this luthier that he "... managed to live up to the most distinguished guitar builders of the time...". It should be remembered that his instruments were awarded the gold medal in 1924 in Rome and Barcelona, and in Buenos Aires at the 1928 Municipal Exhibition (...)
