  • Comments:

    Luis (Santiago) Marin has worked very closely with his father for a long time, assisting with the construction and polishing of all the Paco Santiago Marin Anniversario models. Consequently his own model, of which he makes two or three a year only, have many constructional, decoration and sound qualities.
    This cedar model is very powerful with a warm sound, G air resonance and strongly projecting treble. It is immediately impressive and very sensibly-priced. Highly recommended.
