Description

This 2006 Bouchet model from the father of the Granada school of builders, Antonio Marin, is richer than King Midas and sweeter than ambrosia. Featuring a fabulous set of Brazilian Rosewood for the back and sides and Spruce top, this Bouchet model is beautiful to both the eye and the ear--and both your left and right hands, as the setup on this Classical is glass-smooth and effortless to play.

We found the trebles to be energetic and vibrant, with a quick response that had notes leaping off the fretboard. When played in the upper registers, the treble strings are round, complex, and projective. By comparison, the bass strings are rich but with a pronounced clarity that fills out the voice and balances the lively trebles. Finding a Marin is difficult enough, but finding one with such evenness of tone and depth of voice is even harder; this one won't linger long in the shop.

The treble strings could be a guitar unto themselves, they're so dynamic. The setup is dialed in perfectly to make quick work of complex allegro passages, with rich basses to complement the colorful upper registers.
