We have some more great videos of Taso Comanescu, this time playing Tarrega’s ‘Adelita’ on a fantastic 1890 Antonio de Torres and Jonathan Roth’s arrangement of the traditional Irish song ‘Be Thou My Vision’ on a great new Henner Hagenlocher cedar-top.

    Any information as to exactly what species of pine the top of that Torres is made of? What a beautiful sound, and unique and beautiful look!

      Hey Brian – I asked David Collett and here’s his response:

      “Probably at this point in history it’s not really possible to know the exact genus and species. But here’s an interesting bit of data‚Ķ If it’s from the same stock of wood that Pepe Romero’s pine Torres is made with (1856) – on the underside of the top of that guitar Torres wrote “pino malagueno, 1812″.”

      Cheers,
      Kai

    Wonderful playing and great sounding instruments. I was curious about the string spacing on the Hagenlocher. Is it a design features with the notched saddle to space the 3rd and 4th so far apart? It doesn’t look like the holes in the bridge are that uneven, but the notches on the saddle seem to move the third and 4th string apart.
