Antonio Marin is one of the most iconic southern Spanish builders of the last 50 years. Typical of Marin's best flamenco guitars, this guitar has a nice quick, bouncy responsiveness, a characteristic found in the best of the traditional flamencos. It has a great amount of power, especially at the attack, and a nice, raspy bite to notes in all registers. It is feather light - really a traditional, old-school blanca by all measures. Setup is comfortable and low making playability a breeze. Having been played regularly for over three decades, it has a nice, loose and very open quality to the sound. Even though it is a used guitar, it has been very well taken care of, with one crack in the lower bout of the top and one in the upper bout of the back, both well-repaired. Otherwise, only minor signs of playing wear. This is a monster of a guitar from one of Granada's living legends.
