  • Comments:

    This concert model was made for us in 2009 and is now a reluctant sale by its owner.
    Paco Santiago Marin will not make this model for most people. It is actually very similar to his 30th Anniversario in construction, materials (except Rodgers tuners) and sound quality. In either case, Paco uses the finest materials for us. He has some really excellent tops and particularly prefers to use Indian rosewood of which he has very good quality. They are amongst the most refined guitars made in Granada and have impressive power and projection. They have a rounded sound even when new and a great quality of offering a wide range of dynamic response and tone colour variation. Altogether this makes them very musical instruments and immediately impressive concert guitars. We collect every completed guitar from the maker and enjoy a strong relationship with him which all goes to ensuring the best possible construction and sound qualities.
