This is a tribute to Antonio de Torres guitar with European spruce top. Spanish cypress solid sides and back. 16 inch body size. Three piece back arched with three braces, purfling in bloodwood. The Waverly banjo-style tuners with ivoroid knobs really stand out on this instrument. Strong acoustic sound and clear, yet warm amplified character. Spanish cedar neck that makes the guitar sing and respond to the slightest touch. Old style 10 inch radius Madagascar rosewood fingerboard. Half-herringbone inlay around the top and along the fingerboard. Half herringbone on the headstock as well. Charlie Christian Adjustable pickup, nickel plated vintage tailpiece in ES-150 style with jack output in the base. Bakelite volume and tone knobs.
