Amazing flamenco guitar by Arcadio Marin, built after the famous Faustino Conde guitar of Jesus de Rosario!
This flamenco guitar has been made by master luthier Arcadio Marín in 2020. Arcadio Marín was born in 1967 in Montreal, Canada. His parents were from Spain and he began studying classical guitar when he was 7. Later, he got in touch with Montreal´s flamenco circle, becoming more and more focused in a self-taught way.
At the age of 16, he was part of the flamenco troupe of the “tablao” Chateau Madrid, thus starting a professional career as a soloist, as well as accompanying the dancing and singing.
After some years, he started to get interested in building guitars, because from early youth on he was interested in working with wood too. He met Arturo Sanzano (a famous luthier who once worked in the Ramirez sho). He taught him the techniques for the making of classical and flamenco guitars. After working some time in the shop of Arturo Sanzano, he opened his own workshop.
Today Arcadio Marin is one of the great builders in Spain and his guitars are famous among guitarrists.
