Antonio de Torres is credited with giving the guitar its modern shape. His guitars are highly coveted among collectors in almost any condition that they are found. During his active years, his guitars stood out from that of his contemporaries. This attracted some of his greatest patrons including Julian Arcas and Francisco Tarrega. Torres designs are still considered the blueprint or starting point for many guitars of today. The largest private collection of Antonio de Torres guitars is held by the Romero family. Pepe Romero is said to own three while his brother Angel and Celin each own one.
This replica of an 1864 Antonio de Torres is an exceptional build. Since its construction in 2009, its tonality has progressed considerably. The body size, scale length, and overall construction are true to the Torres blue print. The guitar reverberates with haunting sustain, warm tones, and brilliant trebles. Coupled with a standard character of tension, the guitar allows a player to dive easily into pieces of the romantic era and beyond.
