Camps Guitars was founded in 1945 with the aim of making an instrument adapted to the specific needs of every musician. His founder Juan Camps decided to enroll in guitar manufacturing because of his enthusiasm for music, especially guitars, and wood craftsmanship. Nowadays, his sons Jordi and Javier Camps, who at a very early age already showed great interest for the handcrafted trade working and learning from their father at the firm, manage the firm. Over more than 70 years of experience guarantee their commitment for the craftsmanship and quality of their products. In order to keep the quality and craftsmanship standards, all products are produced in own workshop located in Girona (Spain) and according to traditional methods used for centuries by important Spanish luthiers like Antonio Torres.
Guitar innovatively designed with the aim to facilitate the transition from steel strings to nylon strings. It is by means of adapting the ergonomics to those who are used to electrical or acoustic fingerboards. The neck is narrower and the fingerboard is slightly radius. This contributes to a better easy action. The size of the body is slightly smaller and the scale length is shorter.
This guitar offers high versatility and flexibility. It makes easy to play a width range of styles, but with the added value of nylon string comfort and sound.
Amplified using an exclusive amplification system with six independent saddles that ensures a perfect balance of every string.
Starting on 2 January 2017, you will receive a certificate of origin from us with every purchase to document the fact that the palisander or bubinga wood used in your instrument comes from legal
harvesting and trade.
The reason is the following:
At the World Wildlife Conference in Johannesburg in September 2016, all palisander and bubinga species were added to the so-called CITES Appendix II. The inclusion in CITES II means that starting on
2 January 2017 trade with these wood species will not be prohibited entirely but will be subject to restrictions. This will involve a lot of additional bookkeeping for producers, wholesalers,
retailers, and guitar makers, but not for you.
What do the new trade restrictions mean for musicians and owners of instruments?
No additional verification documents are necessary for ownership as such.
Travel inside the EU:
No special precautions are necessary for travel inside the EU.
Travel to non-EU countries:
Instruments made of the wood species in question may be taken to non-EU countries without verification documents as long as the weight of the wood protected by CITES II in all musical instruments
together is less than 10 KG. The weight of transport containers and accessories is not included.
A verification document is recommended for resale. As a rule, this is the commercial invoice (which you receive from us) or a certificate confirming that the instrument was made using legal CITES II
wood. If you do not have such documentation, the customs officials or the competent regional authorities may confiscate the products if they are being offered for private sale. If you have kept your
invoices for instruments purchased before 2 January 2017 or can provide other clear evidence (e.g., inventory in your tax return, import documents...) that the instruments were purchased before 2
January 2017, you should keep these documents in a safe place and leave a copy with the instruments. No further measures are necessary for the time being.
