ARCHIVE  1a TorresCeder

Back and sides made from the very best hand-picked Mexican ziricote wood with a soundboard made from finest, special cedar wood. The cedro neck has been reinforced several times at its core with ultra-dense and particularly resonant snakewood, including the heel. The asymmetrically weighted domed cedar-wood soundboard optimises efficiency. The 1A TorresCeder delivers excellent dynamics, an extraordinarily 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 triple-pierced rosewood-maple-ziricote head and noble tuning machines by specialist manufacturer, Klaus Scheller, underline the high demands that the 1A TorresCeder makes on quality. This classical guitar impresses visually with its body that has been finished with a UV-cured high-gloss varnish and a soundboard that has been elaborately hand-polished with shellac along with a symmetrically crafted ziricote head plate in a sapwood design.
