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 the new 'Calle Molinos' (2023), an original model by Marin Nejime, No. 70. It is the counterpart of another original model, 'Cuesta del Caidero', which was produced at the same time. Both are named after streets in Granada, and Caidero is the name of the slope where Antonio Marin Montero's workshop is located (with this model, Marin Nejime is attempting to re-create the style of his master before 'Bouchet'). According to Marin Nejime, the street Molínos is adjacent to the Caidero slope, a particularly memorable street from his Spanish apprenticeship.
This particular model is more in line with his current sonic preferences than the more traditional Caidero model. In particular, the contrast between the hard clarity of the treble and the unique fullness of the low to mid tones is extremely distinctive, but also has characteristics suitable for polyphonic expression.
