Well, it has 18 full frets, and two half-frets for the 19th fret, right at the sound hole. Nothing unusual. The neck is only 52 mm wide (at the nut), and is has a cedar top. Here is a synthesis (the rosette is actually really nice, but not so easy to see at the pictures). It had been played heavily, lots of nail marks, and it was restaurated very carefully by Joel Laplane in Marseille.

P.S. My new avatar is the rosette of my 1971 Marin Montero.

Ok. It's interesting to me cuz you notice in the video of Diego del Gastor I posted, and same as the one my roomate had, there is no 19th half fret. The highest note available is Bb (the 18th fret on first string), on both guitars. Just curious if it was his standard build or what.

RE: Antonio Marin Montero (in reply to jorpheus

After discovering days ago that my all-time island / yearning-for-since-decades guitar must have been an Antonio Marin Montero, I just had to bump this old thread.

The work of this man is beyond words. For an instrument sounding Spanish on steroids you can´t pass that shop.

The one I had in hands would play by itself. You´d accidentally strum a chord and it would make some palo of it. hehe It could had make a shady palms-framed hacienda of an iglu anywhere in the Arctic.

Man, I feel like an orphant that finally found his wooden mother.
Someone embrace Antonio M.M. and thank him for that spectacular gift, and for each and every minute that he continues to build.
