Product Description

The Premium models are unique instruments that are developed in cooperation with a selection of exceptional luthiers. These models are exclusively available at Siccas Guitars and are built with the finest Cites-certified Brazilian rosewood of premium quality. Due to its outstanding physical and tonal characteristics, this wood has been used in guitar building since the 19th century and is regarded as the most valuable and aesthetically appealing tonewood in guitar building.

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 superb and important guitar numbered 901 is a rare Brazilian Rosewood (CITES certified) Special Edition. It features many unique details, which make it a true work of art. The exclusivity of the woods used is obvious, and one can only admire the quality of the chosen timbers. This 2020 model with traditional Spanish bracing is very light and built with a very responsive soundboard made of first-class “bear claw” spruce, a very rare detail in Marin Montero’s production. The set of Cites certified Brazilian rosewood has a tight and parallel grain, which is very homogeneous and shows some vivid colors. On the edges, the wood becomes very dark which gives it a subtle elegance. It is important to note that this guitar is one of the few to have its number written on the label.

Also with its fantastic sound this guitar will surely bewitch many guitarists, from the professional concert player to the lover and amateur.The team of Siccas Guitars was unanimously delighted with its consistent tone, and everyone fell under the spell of its volume, the richness of its timbre, and its playability. It is a guitar whose notes carry generously and which can be played with very little effort. Finally, the impressive palette of timbres combined with a remarkable power of sound shows once again that the guitars of Antonio Marin Montero are at the top of the Spanish guitar building of our time.
