3 new Antonio Marin Monteros

Now in stock, we have three new Antonio Marin Montero concert guitars – yes three!  One south american rosewood & spruce; one south american rosewood and cedar … and one african satinwood and spruce – (which will be a unique, one-off guitar). If you are interested in a Marin then along with three others made by his nephew José Marin Plazuelo, nearly identical to his uncle’s, you can have a choice of five to choose from and more to come – nowhere else can offer you such a selection to try. Five of the guitars hanging up in the photo were for us.


  • Hi Thomas. I am glad you like the website - always more work to do! I now have a waiting list for both of those French makers. Regarding Antonio and Jose - there is a lot of overlap between the two and lots of similarities. Jose's guitars have a slightly smaller top bout; all other principle dimensions being the same. The are often so similar in sound - but when different, Jose's do tend to be less warm, less rich and brighter. This is what you perhaps hear as more clear. I went to the workshop of Juan Miguel a couple of times - I believe his stronger arm is flamenco guitars. I played a classical - it was ok but not more than that. I am happy to hear you views and comments.

  • Excellent website clearly showing/sharing your passion about guitar! You have an excellent selection of guitar and thx to your mp3 I can start to imagine playing a Delarue or a Rohé 2 comments: -I had the opportunity while choosing my guitar to play both Antionio Marin Montero and Jose Marin Plazuelo, and although they look very similar, each of them have a very distinct personality. The Antonio Marin being very rich in harmonic while for me the Plazuelo is more clear/pure. --> I believe that Plazuelo is not replicating the work of his uncle but has already found his own way. -I would recommend you to try a Juan Miguel Carmona (from Grenada as well) it is a bit like a Plazuelo but warmer. I believe he deserve to be better known best regards, Thomas
