2007 Jose Marin Plazuelo SP/CY
|Back & Sides:
We consider this maker to be one of the finest, most consistent guitar makers in the world at anywhere near this price. His guitars have outstanding tonal qualities, are expertly made with great attention to detail and are just plain fun to play. They follow in the tradition of Santos and Barbero being very light and fairly small bodied. This flamenco model is nearly identical to the guitar made by his well-known uncle, Antonio Marin Montero and has the lightweight, punchy raspiness of the southern Spanish school. Playability is a dream, and materials are superb. Simply put, Plazuelo is one of the top young Spanish luthiers and this guitar represents an excellent value for the price.
