“Salinas Guitarras" is a Company located in the city of Almeria, Andalusia, Spain. Almería is famous to be the city where the Spanish Guitar was created as it is known today. This creation emerged from the friendship between two illustrious Almerians, luthier Antonio de Torres and guitarist Julián Arcas. In this environment of great guitar tradition, "Salinas Guitars" was born.
“Salinas Guitarras” Is a company that manufactures handcrafted guitars with the finest woods according to the purest Spanish tradition.
These Guitars have been endowed with various innovations: an ergonomic design that improves the posture of the guitarist and a worldwide patented internal resonator system that increases the sonority and power of the instrument.
This resonator system is one of the most outstanding advances in the evolution of the guitar at present in terms of sound improvement of the instrument.
Apoy, an original and genuine accessory for guitar is born from the application of this resonator externally to the Guitar and its use also as an accessory to improve the position of the arm and placement of the instrument in relation to the body.
This accessory "Apoy" both with the guitars are the main products that we elaborate carefully in "Salinas Guitars".
Apoy is an accessory to be placed on the Guitar to rest the arm and its main features are:
1. Apoy contributes a correct position of the arm by preventing the forearm from resting on the guitar and pressing on the flexors that move the fingers. This pressure causes the dreaded Tendonitis and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, the most common injuries in guitarists.
2. Apoy contributes a correct position of the instrument in relation to the body. Apoy allows a new placement of the instrument based on 3 support points: forearm, leg and chest.
This accessory provides an optimum position that keeps the guitarist's backbone straight, keeping the body balanced by resting both feet on the floor and preventing spinal, neck and arm injuries. With Apoy no extra accessory is needed to hold the Guitar.
3. Apoy increases and improves the sound quality of the Guitar. Apoy has a special Patented design that makes it acts as a resonator that filters noisy frequencies and enhances the sound of the instrument by accentuating certain sound waves. These features results in better performance and easier to maintain each sound for longer.
4. Apoy in its version Apoy-A incorporates a wireless microphone that picks up the
sound of the Guitar in an optimal place: next to the bridge near the top. This sound
mixed with the one produced within Apoy creates a natural reverberation in the Guitar. Only with Apoy-A placed on a Guitar, the instrument is ready to amplify, with no need to make modifications or perforations in the instrument.
Apoy is handcrafted with the finest woods in our artisan workshops of "Guitars Salinas"
