Just Arrived!

The guitar is gorgeous, so well made, evidencing the finest craftsmanship.  Fat and round, with explosive power, the dynamic range and tone generated by the guitar is not easily surpassed.  Easily played for a concert level guitar, this guitar is so impressive.  Antonio is without a doubt,  a true master.

The Rosewoods are beautiful.  The guitar is beautiful.  Impressive power, explosive and forceful in nature, with ultimate expression at your fingertips.  This may be one of the finest Marin’s I have ever seen, and I’ve seen a few, all musical and expressive.

The guitar has some slight and honest playing wear on the top, nothing of major consequence.  I’ve taken detailed photos of each section of the guitar for your convenience.

Listening with high quality headphones or audio equipment is highly recommended including EQ manipulation, if possible. We record everything flat with just a touch of Reverb to relieve dryness. My goal is to record the guitar as realistically as is possible. I speak in the recordings, my thoughts about the guitar (and possibly other things?).  My speaking also serves to give you my first impressions and to also give you a balance of the engineering (or lack thereof) versus the sound of the guitar.  I simply do not have time to engineer much of anything.  Thanks. Rich

Here he’s playing a 2002 Antonio Marin #411 a fabulous guitar that demands excellence from the player. It’s clear voicing, power and projection demand it, which I personally adore.
