Lucas Martin was born in Malaga, Spain, in 1984. In 2002 he started to build his first guitar under the guidance of his father, the renowned luthier Bernd Martin. Part of the Granadinian school of guitar making, father and son’s instruments have a powerful Spanish voice with a recognizable colorful timbre. Lucas Martin has dedicated himself to constructing first-quality classical and flamenco guitars in his Sacromonte workshop for more than fifteen years.
The 2023 Lucas Martin No. 99 guitar, identified by “99”, features a spruce soundboard and Indian rosewood back and sides. This traditional Spanish guitar showcases the timeless craftsmanship of the luthier’s art. The spruce soundboard of this guitar is carefully selected for its tonal properties, which include crisp and clear highs, warm and rich lows, and balanced mids.
