José Marín Plazuelo, born in Granada on 13 June 1960 is the nephew and pupil of one of the last living, legendary luthiers, Antonio Marín Montero. The small workshop is located in a residential area in the heart of Granada, near the house of Manuel de Falla and the Alhambra, one of the most beautiful places that many artists love. In 1974 José, as Francisco Santiago Marín before him, started the apprenticeship with his uncle Antonio. Under the guidance of his uncle José became an accomplished luthier. Today José Marín Plazuelo is one of Spain's finest luthiers.
