Torres Concert Guitar

Torres built in two distinct periods designated as the first and second epochs. The first was more experimental, but by the second the plantilla of his finest concert instruments had become standardized. These are two of my reproductions of this model, one in Brazilian rosewood, the other in maple.

Torres used Brazilian rosewood and maple for the backs and sides of his finest instruments in approximately equal numbers. I offer this model in these materials as well as Spanish cypress or Indian rosewood. This example makes relatively extensive use of the decorative motifs that Torres favoured throughout his career – meander, wheat-ear, and chequer board. I offer this model with either lower or higher degrees of decoration which are priced accordingly.
