2023 Manuel Adalid Torres #291 Spruce EIRW 640mm


A superb build by the Spanish Master Manuel Adalid.  Smaller bodied, Torres smaller plantilla and body size, 640mm scale length, with excellent wood choices all add up to an incredible guitar, perfect for the hands of people that measure in and around 8″ in breadth, from tip of thumb to tip of pinky.  The guitar is set up low to moderate making it a breeze to play.  Quite enjoyable.

An authentic sound along with ease of play.  Power evident, voice actualized, color and expression available. Astounding to get all of this out of an inexpensive concert instrument.  Really, a beautiful classical guitar.

The guitar comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Manuel Adalid and Esteve Guitarras, indicating the year and serial number.



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 Audio240111-2023 Manuel Adalid Torres 291 Spruce EIRW 640mm –  Sensitivity is a given, but I was taken aback by the power and force of the guitar.  She is pretty as well, easy to play, winner winner.  Nice guitar.
