2012 Jaime Hernandez "Torres" SP/CSAR
|Back & Sides:
Built in the workshop of GV Rubio, this guitar by luthier Jaime Hernandez features the same specs, dimensions 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. Craftsmanship is superb, materials are first-rate - particularly with the stunning set of CSA rosewood for the back and sides, a very rare treat from this maker. A used instrument, the previous owner had a tap plate installed and had GV Rubio. It has minor wear on the finish and had some repairs done (by GV Rubio) to some hairline cracks in the back, which are virtually invisible from the exterior. A fantastic concert and recording guitar for the discriminating performer.
