My Classic Concert model is my interpretation of the quintessential classical guitar of the late 19th and early 20th century. It is originally based off of the 1888 guitar once owned and played by Francisco Tarrega, but drawing inspiration from the work of other builders that have used the same design in subsequent years such as Hauser and Romanillos. It is a lush, present and balanced instrument that speaks out very well in a concert hall or small room. It has a relatively low body resonance, but speaks clearly and with a balanced frequency response, wide timbral palette and a pure quality of sound.

Rosette options are pictured on the right inspired by Torres and Romanillos designs.
