Antonio Torres (1817-1892) Antonio Torres was born in Spain and was the most important guitar maker in the 19th century. The production concept he formed in the mid-19th century had a profound impact on the modern guitar-making industry. Even today, more than 100 years later, luthiers still use his work as a model and worship it like a Bible. The father of the modern guitar, Francisco Tarrega, used an 1864 Torres guitar, which Tarrega has been using for 25 years.
The prototype for this Torres is Torres1889, one of the classics from the later stages of Torres' career. The prototype has a clear and pure tone, and after 120 years of baptism, she still maintains the original tone characteristics. The reproduction maintains the same height as the original: spruce top, maple back and sides, scalloped bracing, 19-fret ebony fingerboard, thin body design, etc. This is a tribute to the masters. All dimensions are the same as the original, only to allow more guitar lovers to hear its classic sound of Torres.
