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 'Cuesta del Caidero', a new cedar sound board, 640mm scale, made by Marin Nejime, original model No. 70, 2024. This piece is a clear statement of direction from the maker, who has always taken a different approach with each of his new works, even though his origins (Granada School in Spain and his father Kojoro Nejime) are the foundation of his work. Unusually, the model is named 'Cuesta del Caidero.' This is, of course, the name of the slope in Granada where his mentor, Antonio Marin Montero, had his workshop. Here he follows the earlier Granada style, not the Marin Montero of ' After Bouchet,' and creates, as always, a limpid sound.
