What Marco calls "the first classic", this is his "Torres" model which he tells us is not a literal copy of any one particular Torres guitar, but rather the result of the study of several Torres instruments. The plantilla is taken from FE09 (ex Miguel Llobet) which has been admired for generations of luthiers for its elegance and graceful curves. The guitar is extremely lightweight and efficiently built which results in a powerful, explosive sound with deep resonant basses and singing, voice-like trebles. The guitar has immediate and fast response making it incredible easy to play, particularly for the right hand due to the quick attack. Absolutely delightful to play and hear, this is a fantastic guitar built on the most traditional of foundations. We look forward to many more guitars from this excellent luthier and are proud to be his exlcusive representatives in the USA.Photos of this guitar taken just after its completion.
