Plazuelo, Jose Marin Learn More +
Jose Marin Plazuelo was born in Granada, Spain on the 13th of June 1960. He is the nephew of the Granada maker, Antonio Marin Montero, one of the most respected guitar makers in the world. Marin Plazuelo joined his uncle’s workshop in 1974 when he was 14 years old. Here under his uncle’s watchful eye he learned the traditional art of guitar making, developing into a brilliant guitar maker. Using traditional techniques he learned from his uncle, Plazuelo has been making world class concert guitars under his own label for many years now. Plazuelo’s wonderful classical guitars are reminiscent of his famous uncle’s guitars. His much sought after flamenco guitars are similar to the small body guitars of Francisco Simplicio (1874 – 1932), the famous Catalonian guitar maker.
