Guitars of Simplicity

Throughout his career Torres made guitars of inexpensive materials, featuring this simplest possible decoration. I am pleased to offer these as less expensive versions of my work.

The use of Spanish cypress for backs and sides was his most common choice as it was a readily available local material. However, he also used other woods such as mahogany or cherry for these less expensive instruments. Often they were smaller than his more expensive guitars, but not necessarily. This particular example shares the same plantilla as the very ornate FE17.
