Product Overview

The Córdoba Torres is the culmination of centuries of classical guitar making, largely inspired by the work of the great luthier Antonio de Torres but with modern design elements that make this guitar accessible to guitarists today. Original Torres guitars are known for their surprisingly huge sound, despite their small and lightweight frames. The Córdoba Torres carries on this legacy with its big voice and shortened scale length and is based on a specific 1856 Torres with a 24.8” body size and 640mm scale length.

Why Torres?

Antonio de Torres was one of the most important guitar makers of the 19th century, building between the early 1850s and 1892. As a Stradivarius violin is revered among violinists, a Torres guitar is prized and collected among guitarists. Torres innovated a body shape, bracing pattern, soundboard arch, and other design elements that were revolutionary for his time, transforming the guitar into a much louder and resonant instrument with more projection than any guitar that had come before it. Not only are Torres guitars the elite standard by which most classical guitars are compared to today, but most modern steel string acoustic guitar designs are traceable to the Torres lineage.
