  • Comments:

    These spruce guitars are of course are extremely similar to those of his uncle Antonio Marin Montero. This particular guitar is crisp, focussed, quick and with good bass depth. There is some small difference from the rosewood guitars though the different character is hard to put into words - but we love it. They have clarity, good volume, some warmth and are very responsive when wanting tone changes. I have no doubt that the sound and general quality of José's guitars have really come up to an extraordinary high level in the last two or three years. Because of the frequency with which we buy guitars from this workshop and the fact that we go to check and collect every one, we are offered the best of the materials and quality of set-up which makes a difference for you the buyer.
