Comments

The guitar is in excellent shape.  The guitar has slight evidence of playing wear, with about 5 hours of play on the guitar.  The gent who owns it has numerous hand issues, where he cannot play further.

Bernabe’s model Torres is based on the 1864 Torres, “La Suprema”.  The construction attempts to remain true to the original, but allows for modern touches as well, to all of our benefit.

The guitar emphasizes a beautiful voice where nothing stands out, except its overall balance and beautiful tone.   There’s a good amount of sing in this guitar, powerful and bold throughout her range.  I have to say, it’s gorgeous all around.  Superb work.

Setup is quite good, tweaked by me, cleaned, polished, frets dressed and shined up, where the guitar plays fast and furious.  Obviously, all first class material used by the Spanish master.  She plays easily with a marginally moderate to low setup, where the guitar makes no noise, no breaking of the voices, etc.  I measured her at 3.5mm low E 12th fret and 2.9mm at high E, same.

Media

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
