Born in Granada in 1960, José Marin Plazuelo is both the nephew and student of Antonio Marin Montero, one of Granada’s most sought-after and well-known luthiers. José Marin began his apprenticeship with his uncle when he was only 14 years old, and shortly thereafter began building guitars under his own name. In doing so, he creates very finely crafted guitars of very high quality. His guitars are played worldwide by professional and dedicated guitarists. To this day he shares his workshop with Antonio Marin Montero and José Gonzalez Lopez.
This Flamenca Blanca leaves nothing to be desired, as it has everything you could wish for in an excellent flamenco guitar. It is remarkably fast in response and has a powerful and percussive sound character. It is very well made and more than pleasant to play. Its power and expressiveness are particularly striking, with the treble sounding clear and transparent and the warm, balanced bass providing the perfect support.
