Carlos Juan Busquiel Builds Another Guitar From Wood Previously Owned By The Great-Grandson of Antonio de Torres.
Carlos Juan Busquiel has finished building another guitar for GSI. Just like in his previous instrument, Carlos used CSA rosewood which was previously owned by the great-grandson of Antonio de Torres. However, this time, it's going to be a guitar with a cedar top.
Here is a short backstory - last summer Carlos acquired some sets of CSA rosewood from the workshop of Francisco Salvador Jiménez - the great-grandson of Antonio de Torres! Francisco passed away eleven years ago, but his widow hasn't sold the wood from his workshop until recently. Carlos found this wood through his friend, luthier Carlos González, who is also the director of the Antonio de Torres museum in Almeria, Spain.
