This flamenco guitar has been made by master luthier Arcadio Marín in 2020. Arcadio Marín was born in 1967 in Montreal, Canada. His parents were Spaniards, and he began studying classical guitar when he was 7. He did so in private schools first, and then at the local Conservatory. Later, he would get in touch with Montreal´s flamenco circle, becoming more and more focused in a self-taught way. Aged 16, he was part of the flamenco troupe of the “tablao” Chateau Madrid, thus starting a professional career as a soloist, as well as accompanying the dancing and singing. In the year 2000, already tired of travelling, and with a life full of collaborations with great leading figures of flamenco, and tours all around the world, he decided to start a hobby which had been part of his life since he was a kid: working with wood, thus devoting himself to the making of hand-made furniture, with great mastery. In summer 2003 he met the luthier Arturo Sanzano, who would teach him the techniques for the making of classical and flamenco guitars. The rest… is HISTORY.
The chosen woods for this flamenco guitar are German spruce for the top and Indian rosewood for back and sides, despite not having aesthetically superb woods, they are superb as regards seasoning, thus obtaining outstanding sound.
This flamenco guitar has a spectacular sound. Its timbre is so sweet, giving out a superb musicality all along the fingerboard. Its character reminds us of the sound of the “negra” guitars made by Santos Hernández, but with a more modern flamenco spirit.
This flamenco guitar has got medium tension, and a perfectly balanced height of strings in the saddle and fingerboard, providing the guitarist with a high degree of comfort for both hands, as well as an easy performance.
The condition of this flamenco guitar is new.
