Paco Santiago Marin


He was born in 1945 within a family of guitar makers. Since very young he was closely linked to this art,  making guitars his life and passion. Taught by his father, he supplemented his education at the workshop of his  uncle, Antonio Marín Montero, regarded by many as a guitar-making eminent professor.

His high technical qualifications and his great musical sensitivity soon allowed him to excel, developing a kind  of instrument that stand out for their great projection, balance and colour, attracting many great guitar  "maestros" such as Ricardo Gallen, Leo Brouwer, Manuel Gonzalez, Iliana Matos,  among others.

His guitars are highly appreciated and valued, especially in the classical field, regarded by performers as being  among the best guitars in the world.

Apart from building artisan guitars, Paco also delivers seminars and courses on guitar building all around the world.
