2005 Antonio Marin #599 Bouchet Model Spruce CSA
Just Arrived! Custom built for a client of mine, hand selected woods from Antonio’s shop, from the Alpine Spruce to the CSA Rosewoods used throughout. One of the finest examples of Granada work that I’ve seen in a very long while. The client writes to me, “This is a Bouchet model featuring a light 5 fan bracing system and under bridge brace, increasing the flexibility of the top while maintaining structural stability. The result is greatly increased dynamic range and tonal modulation…Bouchet was a good friend and colleague of Antonio’s. The playability of the guitar is a dream, materials are superb, including a stunning piece of CSA Rosewood used for the back and sides.
The guitar is gorgeous, so well made, evidencing the finest craftsmanship. Fat and round, with excellent 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 guitar is signed and numbered on one of the inside braces, designating a Bouchet Model and 599 No. along with Antonio’s signature.
The Rosewoods are beautiful. The guitar is beautiful. Impressive power, explosive and forceful in nature, with ultimate expression at your fingertips.
Condition is certainly played, nail marks, etc but difficult to see except up close. Honest play wear is the right description. Photos should show you everything.
The guitar is NOT eligible for CITES certification. The guitar should be sold only within the USA
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 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
MP3 Audio – 220608-2005 Antonio Marin 599 Bouchet Model Spruce CSA – a super clear, bright and brilliantly balanced sound with ease of play. Antonio at his best. I’ve had a few examples of Antonio Marin through the gallery, including a couple of other Bouchet models. He clearly enjoyed the build.
