His small shop produced some of the finest guitars of his time. Ibañez guitars, being of Valencian design, were more ornate than the Madrid-designed guitars. The lines were not as delicate, but like many Valencian guitars, they were easy to finger and produced a fair sized and pleasant sound. Due to this fact, and their moderate price, they were very popular with guitar students.
