Juliana Hernández, luthier: "For me, building a guitar is like having a child".

Juliana Hernández is 33 years old and comes from Argentina. She has been a luthier for more than 10 years. When she was a little girl, she was attracted to the guitar because her father always played it when he came home from work. It is one of the few memories she has left of her father, who died when she was only 7 years old. That is why the guitar became a very special instrument for her.
