Short Scale (640mm) Torres/Romanillos Model

I was able to string up this new 640mm scale length Torres/Romanillos model last weekend thanks to a surprise Saturday delivery from Scheller! I decided to go a bit more Romanillos than Torres on this guitar if that makes any sense. What I mean, is that I stiffened up the overall construction a bit more that usual to help with the treble response of the instrument, particularly considering the shorter scale. I feel that it helped even out the sustain and decay of notes on the first string and provide more clarity and range. It is, however, still a relatively lush and deep sounding instrument with a low body resonance just above F#.
