  • Comments:

    The Anniversario models of Paco Santiago Marin are well-established and in which he uses his finest, aged timbers. Internally, they are very similar to the previous concert model, but there is some detail enhancement to the strutting below the bridge. As well as using the best of his fine materials, he spends much time voicing the body components, checking and adjusting the completed body frequencies and tap-tones. They are amongst the most refined guitars made in Granada and commonly possess 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 quality.
