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 splendid 2020 Antonio Marin Montero is a seriously impressive Robert Bouchet model. With a sheer endless seeming sustain and three-dimensional quality of sound, it is truly a moving concert guitar. Being second-hand with only superficial playing marks on the soundboard, it is a great opportunity to get a rare Robert Bouchet model by the legendary Granadinian guitar maker.
