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 2015 Antonio Marin Montero by Antonio Marin is exactly the right instrument for a guitarist who is looking for an open sounding Spanish guitar in excellent condition. The instrument is only five years old and already sounds as if it has been played for a lifetime. Her voice is strong, crisp and the response of the soundboard is very immediate. The sound is fast and projecting and yet combined with even sustain and rich timbres. Definitely one of the best Antonio Marin Montero’s we’ve had on sale lately.
