  • Comments:

    Like his uncle, Antonio Marin Montero, José Marin Plazuelo makes both flamenco and classical guitars but has a particular reputation amongst Spanish players for fine flamencos.
    The is a super blanca with the very highest quality timbers, producing a really crisp, rasping flamenco sound and with impressive volume. It is light and set up very well.
    Such an opportunity for a Marin Plazuelo flamenco in fabulous condition, with terrific sound and a price saving over a totally new one.
