  • Comments:

    The Marin Montero guitars are very well-known of course and highly respected as coming from the most admired maker in southern Spain. Now 85 years of age, he still works every day on his instruments.
    This particular guitar is a really good one - strong and loud with a pleasing bass depth and spontaneous, singing treble and a quality that only comes from a bit of age.
    Combined with its really excellent condition, this is a really good opportunity.
