La Cañada models are built following the pattern of old masters and are the result of the cooperation of two German guitar builders.
In his activity as a respected and world-renowned guitar maker, Edmund Blöchinger was able to examine and measure many beautiful original instruments made by Antonio de Torres, among others. In cooperation with guitar maker and tonewood expert Wolfgang Jellinghaus, Blöchinger has created handmade instruments that are built in a small manufactory in China based on Blöchinger’s detailed construction plans. Due to the excellent choice of wood and the careful workmanship, guitars in the style of old masters are made there, which are more than worth seeing.
Model 115 is a tribute to Antonio de Torres’ guitar of the second construction period, played by Tárregas master student Emilio Pujol and before that by his wife, Mathilde Ruiz. This model has the abbreviation SE for “Second Epoch”.
Due to light construction, this guitar has a very direct response. It has a warm round sound character with wonderful separation of the voices and is, therefore, suitable for a wide repertoire. The guitar is finished with shellac which completes the overall picture of this instrument very nicely. In addition, the price-performance ratio is excellent and allows almost every passionate guitarist to purchase an instrument that meets the highest demands.
