The models "XXX Aniversario" were the best guitars of Paco Santiago Marín of that time.
These guitars are built with the best wood, decorated with a central band in ebony and equipped with Rodgers tuners.
The interior is similar to the "Concert" model with some improvements. Recently appeared the "40 and 50 Aniversario".
The models "XXX Aniversario" are among the best guitars of Grenade, they are among the most powerful and refined.
This guitar has been played professionally for the last four years in solo as in chamber music and has developed all its aromas. It possesses an exceptional dynamics and an incredible comfort of play. I contacted Paco Marin recently who has increased his rates this year and no longer offers Brazilian Rosewood. For the story this guitar appears in the last issue of the journal Orféo devoted to the lutherie of Grenade on page 54, you will notably observe the fan bracing of the top:
Visible on Bordeaux and Paris, depending on my travels.
