Born in Marchena (Sevilla) in 1933 and he moved to Cordoba in 1951.
Juan Montero is considered one of the best guitar makers in Cordoba, and he shared this time with the eminent Míguel Rodríguez, who together with the master Manuel Reyes is considered to be the best in Cordoban guitars. His instruments are always handed varnished and many professionals used, and still use his guitars such as Luis Calderito and Tomatito, among others.
Juan has his workshop in 23 Goya Street and is a very charming and humble person. He started out as a carpenter, and he taught himself his art, as he did not have a master who taught him the art of the guitar making.
