Every instrument at Candelas Guitars in East L.A. is handcrafted by third-generation luthier Tomas Delgado.

Following traditions learned from his grandfather, he’s built guitars for Jose Feliciano, Raul Pacheco of Ozomatli, and Gaby Moreno, among others.

The store, which offers repairs, custom work and guitar lessons, has been open for more than 75 years.
