Antonio Marín Montero was born in Granada in 1933. In 1957, he joined master Pérez’s workshop and two years later, in 1959, his father advised him to visit Eduardo Ferrer for whom he worked until opening his own workshop. A milestone in Antonio Marin Montero’s career was his meeting with the French luthier Robert Bouchet in the 1970s. The two artists became friends and built several guitars together. The confrontation between Marin Montero’s Spanish building system and Robert Bouchet’s very particular bracing construction was a great source of inspiration for Antonio Marin Montero, and he continued to build a model with the” Robert Bouchet ” bracing throughout his career. Today Antonio Marin Montero is one of the most sought-after Spanish guitar makers.
This is a beautiful instrument by the legendary Granada luthier, Antonio Marin Montero. A classy combination of the straight-grain spruce soundboard and Amazonas rosewood display a lovely glance to the overall appearance of this guitar. It completely reflects the Spanish guitar making tradition, especially the Granada school. In terms of sound, it impresses with its wonderfully singing trebles, which are characterised by exceptional clarity and offer almost unlimited sound possibilities – a perfect instrument for guitarists who use timbres as a stylistic element to tell “stories” with their music. Meanwhile, the deep, warm basses provide a harmonious contrast to the overall tone. This instrument from 1998 has been well looked after and is therefore in very good condition, with few signs of playing. This Marin Bouchet model has matured over the years and is ready for any playing situation. An excellent opportunity to acquire an already well-developed guitar from one of the best guitar makers worldwide.
