  • Comments:

    Typically very open, strong and clear with depth, balance and richness. The quantity of guitars we source from this workshop is such that we are offered the best woods and finish quality.
    Antonio has made only a handful of guitars with ziricote and has been looking for more of it to be able to do others for us. This is one of only a few in combination with cedar that he has made and has turned out to be extremely impressive as did a couple of others we had.
    Typical feel and sound of a Marin Montero with that extra beauty from the ziricote timber.
