Guitar Model : Torres

1864 Torres (FE17)


Torres made three guitars for Francesco Tarrega; the
first was an 1864 instrument designated in
Romanilloss catalogue as FE17.
It is lavishly ornamented and features most of the decorative motifs
used by Torres throughout his career: meander (or Greek key), fine
green and white wheat-ear or herringbone, the chequerboard and the
lozenge.
