Originally located in old Lincoln St., in the heart of downtown Cebu City, Ferangeli Guitar Handcrafter formerly known as La Filipina, has been handcrafting quality acoustic guitar instruments since 1919. Now managed and operated by Master Luthier Fernando Dagoc, the custom guitar factory is now located in Barangay Pajac, Lapu-lapu City in the Island of Mactan – the capital of guitar making craft in the country.
Far from the crude tools of yore, Ferangeli now handcrafts its exquisite line of acoustic steel and classical guitars with state-of-the-art equipment and backed up by a pool of experienced highly skilled craftsmen and luthiers. These fine instruments are made under the strict supervision of Fernando Dagoc who is descended from a family line of excellent luthiers. Over the years and with his experience in various production processes, Mr. Dagoc continues to learn new innovations in guitar technology and invests in the latest equipment that is at par with international luthier standards.
Such qualities set him apart from the other luthiers in the community, and as a testimony to his superb craftsmanship, he has customized orders from different parts of the globe. Some of his classical guitar pieces are exported to established Guitar shops in Spain and the U.S.
