Built the year before Francisco Tarrega's favorite Torres guitar (SE 114), this guitar (SE 105) is one of the great masterpieces of Torres' output for its quality of sound, condition and historical importance. It’s a medium-sized guitar, braced with 5 fans and a 635mm scale so very comfortable and easy to play – it was also re-fretted recently - the fresh setup makes it play with maximum ease. It has an amazing, full sound, very rich with great texture in every note, but also very clear. It has a sensitive dynamic range and color palette, so it’s incredibly easy to separate melody lines from accompaniment and bass parts - the guitar is simply very friendly to the hands and almost plays by itself. When evaluating the sound of a guitar like this, it's difficult to tell where the genius of Torres ends; and the accumulated years of being played by great artists begins. This instrument is truly a marvel of guitar making history.
