Here’s guitarist Mak Grgic playing Myers’ Cavatina (known to many of us as the theme from The Deer Hunter) on a great 1994 Antonio Marin classical. This is Marin’s ‘Bouchet’ model (named after the collaboration between Marin and legendary French luthier Robert Bouchet) and if you wanted to hear just how sweet and lyrical a guitar like this can sound you couldn’t have chosen a better piece.

    An attractive sonority in Mak’s hands although good sustain in the higher registers is not evident in this recording. What designates a Marin Montero as a ‘Bouchet’ model? Are all his guitars ‘Bouchet’ models’? (When he began making this model, the design of the head was a homage to Bouchet’s design but no longer.)

    This model has a remarkable balance between bass and treble and I dub it a “B-Flat” guitar because of the dimensions of the Bouchet. I should do so well myself as a luthier.

    Disappointing sound ,nothing like the gorgeous fleta sound on the original John Williams recording many years ago.

    The nephew of Antonio Marin ,Jose Marin Plazuelo , makes even better guitars than his uncle. Plazuelo is one of the greatest living guitar makers .

    Hi Joe, what makes you think this guitar has the dimensions of a Bouchet?
