  • Comments:

    These Torres-style guitars are very appealing to play and for many people, the feel and sound is a very pleasant surprise. They are easy to play and have such a lot of sound with depth, clarity, a good overall balance and most importantly, some interesting character competing with guitars at much higher price. There is also no shortage of volume either. For those with smaller hands or who just prefer smaller-bodied, older-style guitars, these Torres-style guitars are terrific performers.
