If you’ve never had a guitar made by Antonio Marin Montero, you have missed something – I am sure of that!
Antonio Marin is considered to be the foundational builder of the Granada school – many builders from around the world have come to Granada to work with and learn from this great maker.
His association with Robert Bouchet is legendary – together the two of them collaborated and inspired each other.
It has a robust, creamy quality to the sound and has a nice quick, bouncy responsiveness, a characteristic found in the best of the southern Spanish instruments.
The scale length is 655 mm and the nut width 52 mm. It has a spruce top and mahogany back and sides.
The guitar is in a wonderful and original condition, well preserved, but with a repaired crack on the back. It is set up well and in a good, concert-ready condition.
