Description

Jose Marin Plazuelo is one of our favorite, and one of the most consistent, makers from southern Spain, building flamenco and classical guitars of equally impressive quality, with concert-worthy tone, ease of play and volume. Among the dozens we've carried, this one is special. It was chosen by a fellow dealer as his personal instrument, from many other great flamencos from Plazuelo and others, then played at gigs for 20 years. It has a patina of light nail marks on the top, but no scratches, gouges or cracks, frets are in great shape and overall the condition is excellent. The action is perfect, and the sound is huge, open and well-aged, reflecting thousands of hours of play - the kind of tone you just can't find in a new instrument. It has a new set of Rubner machines and is ready for another 20 years of music.

Background

José Marín Plazuelo was born in Granada, on the 13th of June, 1960. He is the nephew of Antonio Marín Montero. In 1974, when he was just 14 years old, he started working alongside his uncle where him and José González López learned how to build instruments. From the very beginning, José’s uncle praised his nephew’s job. José follows Antonio Marín’s technique, he makes his own guitars in a traditional Spanish way. Nowadays José makes his own guitars even though he shares the workshop with his family, including his uncle who is one of the most prestigious luthiers in the world. José’s classical and flamenco guitars are mainly inspired by the experience acquired from his uncle.
