Francisco Simplicio (1874 - 1932) was a Catalan luthier working in the first half of the 20th century. Simplicio worked as a cabinet maker for 18 years before starting as an apprenticed to guitar maker Enrique Garcia in Barcelona. When Garcia died in 1922 Simplicio took over the workshop. His fine woodworking skills developed during his long cabinet making career are evident in his elaborate purflings and carved headstocks.
