  • Comments:

    These spruce guitars are of course are extremely similar to those of his uncle Antonio Marin Montero. They have a spontaneous, quick response with clarity, good volume, some warmth and brightness and are very responsive when wanting tone changes. Because of the volume of guitars we have bought from this workshop and the fact that we go to check and collect every one, they go the extra mile in terms of materials and quality of set-up which makes a difference for you the buyer
