Description

This particular instrument is inspired by the 1859 Torres that was played and cherished by Miguel Llobet and is now housed in the Museu de la Musica in Barcelona, Spain. Rather than a literal copy, Blochinger has seamlessly fused elements of the historical guitar into his own design - obviously the largest departure being the use of cedar for the soundboard. The resulting instrument has enormous charm both physically and sonically. The tone is warm with a beautiful soft glow but is also very penetrating and clear. It has surprising volume despite the slightly smaller body size, making it a delight to play. It also boasts one of the most comfortable neck-shapes, and the finish on the back of the neck is done in such a way that the left hand plays effortlessly, with no "stickiness" for the left thumb. Although a second-hand guitar, it is in excellent condition with only some wear in the finish from regular use. The tuners have also been changed to Rodgers. Otherwise, the guitar remains an extremely impressive and beautiful guitar for the serious performer or collector alike.
