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.
The photos of this guitar are general product images that may differ from the actual instrument.
