2013 Claudio Meneghelli Torres FE-04 Spruce Cypress


An absolutely gorgeous commentary on the continuing legacy of Antonio Torres and the Romanillos family.  Named La Leona and #2 in a limited build, the guitar features a Tornavoz system, stabilized by string tension and wooden pegs, allowing for freedom of movement of the top, giving her a ferociousness of sound and poignant focus that is seemingly not possible given the Spruce/Cypress configuration.  The guitar comes with specially designed Spanish tuners built by Nicoló Alessi and of course, the Karura Custom case.  The owner took fabulous care of the guitar.  She plays effortlessly, with a slightly smaller body that is comfortable and snug against your body, yet measures in at a 650mm scale length.  This is an incredibly beautiful guitar, one that should be in a family archive of heirloom instruments.

Claudio Meneghelli – Switzerland
Stunning Romanillos inspired guitars, recommended by Jose and Liam Romanillos!
The first luthier ever to be specially recognized by Jose and Liam Romanillos, Claudio has received significant acknowledgement for his Romanillos inspired instruments. Museum quality craftsmanship combined with a gorgeous tonal palate and doubled sides producing excellent volume, the result is instruments that are simply sublime…

Claudio Meneghelli is the first luthier ever to be specially recognized by Jose and Liam Romanillos. He was singled out from among the many fine Luthiers who have attended the Romanillos courses over the years and received the designation of “Romanillos ‘ most promising luthier’ selection”. I was completely captivated by his guitars from the very beginning and I join Jose and Liam in their praise of this fine builder. Claudio’s instruments possess craftsmanship and beauty of art museum quality. He doubles the sides, often in Birch, which helps to provide excellent volume while at the same time adding a captivating and magical quality to the tone. Tonally they evoke a fine Romanillos in their beauty, clarity, and articulation, with a sweetness and musicality that are exemplary.



Listening with high quality headphones or audio equipment is highly recommended including EQ manipulation, if possible. We record everything flat with just a touch of Reverb to relieve dryness. My goal is to record the guitar as realistically as is possible. I speak in the recordings, my thoughts about the guitar (and possibly other things?).  My speaking also serves to give you my first impressions and to also give you a balance of the engineering (or lack thereof) versus the sound of the guitar.  I simply do not have time to engineer much of anything.  Thanks. Rich

MP3 Audio – 181107-Claudio Meneghelli Classical Guitar Torres FE-04 2013 – I figured to play some period authentic music, Carcassi from Opus 10, sight-reading, so you can imagine, but where I play well, you can hear the beautiful voice and clarity of this guitar.  Very nice.
