Steve Higgins and the Javi Pérez Special

Steve was an

american builder

working in the USA,

but a part from being the builder

he was a free

spirit inside.

This allowed him to face

the change,

so then he mastered the art

of making the nice guitars.

He did so in Barcelona,

a little workshop in La Sagrera.

Thatʼs where I found him

when was searching

for me amp's repairing.

Instead I found a

man that I would see

every single week,

who would teach me

how to make my very

own guitar indeed.

And thatʼs only

the material part of it.

The simple way

of life he had, earning a

humble living through

sharing his valuable

art, always full

of humour, paternal

and motivating,

was definitely

something that

would inspire me

over the years. First

his dog, Thor, passed

away. He followed

not long later, after

smartly accepting

that his health was

getting worse and

declining the doctors

offers to keep him

alive for many years.

That was his last

lesson. Learn to die!
