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 beautiful flamenco guitar has a back and sides made of Indian rosewood, which is particularly interesting. With its light construction, it is truly the perfect combination of the flamenco guitar’s responsiveness and the rich sound of the classical guitar. The playability is incredible, and really allows you to tackle all styles, eras and repertoires. Fortunately, the tuning pegs are mechanical and made by Peghed, which makes tuning as easy as it gets. We have always admired Antonio Marin Montero’s guitars for their authentic sound and unique tonal qualities, and this guitar really has it all.
