Notes: Jose Marin Plazuelo learned the art of fine luthiery under his uncle, Antonio Marin Montero, with whom he continues to share a workshop in Grenada. Just slightly more compact than the Torres model, this blanca is built with the finest traditional tonewoods, and braced with a lightweight 'five fan' design.

At a scant 1.32kg, the instrument is wonderfully light in weight, with a powerful, vibrant voice. From a fine private collection, the instrument has been lovingly maintained, without cracks, buckle, thumb or fingerboard wear, and shows only a few incidental nicks in the feather-light French polish finish.

An exceptional value for the serious player. One only: call now.

Case: Original deluxe fitted plush lined hardshell case.
