2014 Jaime Hernandez "Torres" SP/IN
|Back & Sides:
This guitar was built by luthier Jaime Hernandez, who was trained by his brother in law, German Vazquez Rubio here in Los Angeles. It features the same specs and dimensions that are found on the GV Rubio "Torres" model. The slightly more compact body size and big sound make this guitar incredibly fun and easy to play. Sound is very bold, with thick, weighty trebles and large, bouncy basses. It is extremely clear, with all notes well-separated, yet also retains a romantic warmth which makes it suitable for virtually any style of music. This guitar features beautiful inlay work, with mosaic-style purfling around the rosette and plantilla. A fantastic concert and recording guitar for the discriminating performer, and also a staff and client favorite.
Note: Although this is a second-hand guitar, it is in excellent condition with virtually no wear. A Smallman-style armrest was added by German Vazquez Rubio (after these photos were taken) to the lower bout, bass side. Otherwise guitar is as pictured here.
