José Marin Plazuelo was born in Granada in 1960. He is the the nephew of the renowned luthier Antonio Marin Montero. Heavily influenced by Montero, Plazuelo's instruments are entirely handmade using traditional techniques. While touring on the pro circuit, I played Plazuelo guitars almost exclusively for 20 years. I love their crisp tones and big volume.
This was my personal guitar for many years; I played it on more than 50 gigs. One of the 2 or 3 best Plazuelo's i've had in the shop in 29 years of business. Scattered nail marks on the top, but in excellent structural condition.
