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 brand new flamenco model was built in 2020 and is numbered 906. It has a very light and resonant spruce top. Back and sides are made from very thinly worked cypress, in the Spanish tradition. This guitar is light, responsive, and has a characteristic traditional cypress tone. It is a very fine flamenco guitar and a beautiful singing instrument. A hard-shell case is included.
