Latest Updates From Uruguayan Luthier Ariel Ameijenda
There are some new and exciting updates from Uruguayan luthier, Ariel Ameijenda.
Ariel has recently started working on a new guitar for us and it will be his Torres model. Ariel's Torres model is based on an 1885 Antonio de Torres SE 81 guitar that for a long time was considered missing until it was rediscovered six years ago in Uruguay (Learn more). Ariel's model is very detailed since it's based on very accurate plans that contain more than 50 measurements of the SE 81 guitar that were prepared in Uruguay after the guitar was miraculously found there.
Ariel's guitar is still in the early stages of the building process, but we already have a few sneak peek photos. Check them out below!
In addition to sharing photos of his newest guitar, Ariel also sent us two excellent recordings that were recently made in his workshop on four of his guitars. Below you'll find the videos of Mauro Marasco, Alvaro Genta, Daniel Lacuesta, and Nicolás González performing in a quartet on three guitars and a guitarrón - all built by Ariel.
