Telesforo Bavel Julve Jordán (1884-1945) was born in Villarroya de los Pinares, in the province of Teruel north of Valencia. His parents were weavers, but his uncle Andrés Marin (trained by Salvador Ibáñez) was a guitar maker, so at the age of 14 he was sent to apprentice with his uncle. He worked there until 1909, when he started his own workshop. The company became an important manufacturer of guitars. In 1933 he bought the company that Salvador Ibáñez had left to his sons. When he died in 1945, his sons Telesforo and Juan took over and continued the business until 1974.

This guitar was probably built in the early 40's. We find the woody and silky tone of the instruments of that time. The bass is round and the treble is clear, vibrant and expressive.
