This guitar, made in 1998 by the great Granada-based builder Paco Santiago Marin (nephew of Antonio Marin), is a fantastic classical. Perhaps among the most powerful of the Granada instruments, these also have a very elegant, lyrical voice, and yet at the same time, it has a very rich and thick quality of tone across all registers - very impressive especially since it's a spruce top. It's also lightweight for its size, and has a huge bite at the attack of every note. Apart from some playing wear in the finish, there is one small hairline (and well-repaired) crack on the back. This is a great instrument by one of the most respected Spanish builders alive today.
