PROFESSIONAL LINE HE Torres:
Back and ribs made from expressive grained Cocobolo with a soundboard made from finest spruce wood. The cedro neck has been reinforced several times at its core with rosewood / mahogany, including the heel. The asymmetrically weighted domed spruce-wood soundboard optimises efficiency. The HE Torres delivers excellent dynamics, a warm and substance-rich sound, crispness and good responsiveness. The materials used for this classical guitar along with its workmanship and sound mean that it is able to meet highest demands.
The pierced rosewood-maple-Macassar head and noble designer tuning machines by Nicoló Alessi underline the high demands that the HE Torres makes on quality. This classical guitar impresses visually with its body that has been finished with a UV-curing high-gloss varnish and a soundboard that has been elaborately hand-polished with shellac.
