Wolfgang Jellinghaus has been building guitars since the age of fourteen. He was born in 1951 in Dortmund, Germany, the son of a guitar maker, where he grew up with guitars at an early age. Over the years he developed a great passion and expertise for this instrument. Wolfgang Jellinghaus has been living and working in China for several years, where he builds handmade guitars of astonishing quality in a small manufactory.
Model 114 Torres is a tribute to Antonio de Torre’s guitar of the second construction period, played by Tárrega himself. The original was built in 1888 and this homage is made in a gorgeous way full of details that are featured on the original guitar.
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.
