Nope. I've started saving for the Torres!!larryguitar wrote:Nice looking guitar! I love me cedar AMM. Peter, are you tempted to get another one?
Yes, this has the Bouchet bracing (with some of Marin's own personal adjustments for sure). I was fortunate some years back to be able to compare the Marin with a Bouchet guitar. Probably because of the similarities in bracing and Marin having collaborated with Bouchet before, both guitars had the clear, singing transparent tone and a ringing sustain that kept going and going. That said, the Marin had a more 'spanish' quality to the tone.WoodNString wrote:Looks great! Is this Marin's Bouchet bracing?
Hi, playability is very comfortable and responsive to the touch - easy to grip chords, the action for slurs is very responsive and vibrato is very easy to accentuate, if I could use that word. You hear the vibrato coming out of the guitar and this Marin together with the ease of vibrato, always makes me want to hold on and savour the notes.chelson wrote:How to resist such a beautiful guitar? Hope it is very playable as well.
Although its price is really beyond my reach, post to follow this sales, in order to keep my heart beating again and also away from the Kevin Aram in the other, which cannot ship due to BRW.
At least this one I still have the chance to pay a visit personally, to check it out and dream to bring it back. Haha!
It's Marin's own french polish. The french polish is applied to the top, sides and back. He is very experienced at this polish and is extremely painstaking. You can see from the photos how beautiful the french polish is.Joe Medina wrote:What type of finish is on the guitar?
Some would say that the finish is not flat enough. I really like that effect on the soundboard though. Over time it's probably shrunk somewhat and takes on the grain imprint of the soundboard. It softens the hard glossy effect. Much warmer looking and a nicer effect IMO.akg wrote:It's Marin's own french polish. The french polish is applied to the top, sides and back.
