This combination of rosewood & cedar produces a very open, rich and particularly clear guitar with impressive sustain. These have the warmth and power associated with cedar but not so much lack of clarity or sustain that some cedar guitars can have. This one was made for us initially and is a real beauty. It has such freedom of sound, rich bass, singing treble and stacks of power. We obtain excellent Antonio Marins and go to check and collect each and every one. The quantity of guitars we source from this workshop is such that we are offered the best woods and finish quality.
In superb condition, with beautiful timbers, with Rodgers tuners and excellent sound, this is an enviable Marin Montero.
