  • Comments:

    This is a superb-looking, flamenco blanca guitar from Antonio Marin Montero that is a marvellous-sounding flamenco guitar. It has his old 1970's rosette and head-shape. The quality of the wood and the finish are really excellent which sets up the expectation of excellent sound - which indeed it has - bright, crisp, quick and aggressive yet with a plaintive quality too.
    This is a terrific guitar from every aspect; appearance, playability & flamenco sound.
