Marin Nejime was born in 1986 and is the son of Kojiro Nejime (Alberto Nejime Ono). Influenced by his father, he developed an interest in music and crafts from an early age, and after several visits to Spain, in September 2012, he stayed in Granada for an extended period of time to study under his father's mentor, Antonio Marin Montero. He builds his instruments based on traditional Spanish construction methods, which he incorporates with fresh and unique acoustic characteristics. In particular, the precision and beautiful finish of the paintwork is as excellent as that of his father and mentor, and every model shows a beautiful appearance. He has received high acclaim abroad and in 2017 won a prize in the production competition of the International Guitar Festival in Granada; in 2020 his interview and instruments were featured in Orfeo Magazine No. 15, published by the French publication Camino Verde.

Orfeo Magazine No.15 features an interview with Kaoru Ono(Masahiro Tanabe, Alberto Nejime Ohno, Marin Nejime, Yuichi Shimizu, Daisuke Kuriyama)

We are pleased to announce the arrival of Marin Nejime's newest production, 'Cuesta del Caidero' (2023), an original model of Marin Nejime's production No. 70.
The maker, while respecting his origins (Granada School in Spain and his father Kojiro Nejime), takes a different approach with each of his new works, and this one clearly shows his pride in his work. This work, unusually named after the model, is named 'Caidero Slope,' which is of course the name of the slope in Granada where his mentor Antonio Marin Montero's workshop is located. Here, he does not follow Antonio Marin Montero's style after Bouchet, but rather his earlier Granada style, creating a limpid acoustic.
