Antonio Marin is considered to be the foundational builder of the contemporary Granada school – many luthiers from around the world have come to Granada to work with and learn from this great maker. This particular instrument is a very rare find - a cedar/cypress classical from the early 1970's in "played" but otherwise pristine condition (no cracks, no repairs). In many ways it is reminiscent of the mid-century style guitars coming out of the Miguel Rodriguez workshop in the 1960's - lightly built, with a powerful and bouncy, quick attack but at the same time, having a warm, lyrical character to the tone. This is a fantastic instrument and well priced for the player seeking the sound of a great Southern Spanish guitar.
