The guitar is a marvel of luthier artistry, masterfully crafted and radiating both visual and acoustic elegance. From the verdant heart of Mexico, the Ziricote wood, known for its breathtaking patterns and exceptional acoustic properties, has been meticulously chosen to sculpt the back and sides of this musical masterpiece. This exquisite foundation is complemented by a top forged from the finest cedarwood, resonating with the whispered secrets of ancient forests.
The Cedro neck, an embodiment of strength and grace, has been fortified with layers of illustrious snakewood. Renowned for its dense, resonant nature, snakewood brings not only strength but also a unique tonal character. The ingeniously architected cedar top boasts a design aimed to elevate sound efficiency to its zenith, ensuring that every plucked string sends forth a symphony.
With the 1A TorresCedar, every note played resonates with astounding dynamics, plunging into deep tonalities, and emerging with crisp distinctiveness. Its resonance is swift, filling the room with musical narratives that are as clear as they are captivating. Truly, in the realms of material selection, craftsmanship, and auditory excellence, this concert guitar soars, meeting and exceeding the loftiest of expectations.
Turning our gaze to the intricate headstock, we’re met with a mesmerizing blend of rosewood, maple, and Ziricote, each wood lending its unique charm and character. The precision mechanisms, courtesy of the renowned Klaus Scheller, further attest to the elite stature of the 1A TorresCedar. Adorning its form is a UV-cured high-gloss finish, glistening in the light, contrasted beautifully with the hand-polished shellac top coating that exudes a soft, natural glow. The Ziricote headstock, symmetrically crafted and flaunting a heartwood design, adds the finishing touch to this guitar’s regal countenance.
Every inch of this guitar, down to the CCCase carbon case in which it resides, speaks of luxury and precision.
