Paco Santiago Marín was born in Granada, Spain, in 1946. He comes from a family of guitar makers and has been building guitars since 1965. He has loved wood since he was a child. His father, Francisco Santiago Oliva, a cabinet maker by vocation, instructed him in the trade and with him he remained in the carpentry until 1963, the year in which he entered the workshop of his uncle, Antonio Marín Montero, to complete his training as a guitar maker.
In 1972 he decided to become independent and created his own workshop.
For 20 years, his son, Luis Santiago, has worked alongside him.
