Vicente Tatay was born in 1869 and established his workshop in 1889. He built guitars together with his sons who learned the craft from their father. The demand was very high and they started hiring more and more craftsmen as well as mechanizing some parts of the building process. Finally they set up a factory that made up to 40 000 guitars a year. When Vicente retired in 1942, the sons continued the production under the name Hijos de Vicente Tatay (meaning: sons of Vicente Tatay).
