This guitar was built with an absolutely striking set of satinwood for the back and sides. This is a very dense wood, very hard and reflective so produces a tone with added bite, much like a negra. However at the thickness this was made, it also behaves and vibrates much like a blanca, so it makes for a very interesting and satisfying flamenco all around. Typical of Marin's guitars, it has a nice quick, bouncy responsiveness, a characteristic found in the best of the southern Spanish instruments. Setup is comfortable and low making playability a breeze. A monster flamenco built by one of the great living Spanish legends.
