Loro played by Roberto Capocchi


This guitar is modeled after an 1856 Antonio Torres instrument owned by Pepe Romero. My friend Ron Hatchez shared the design with me about 30 years ago when he was doing some work on the instrument for Pepe. I should really say this was inspired by the 1856 instrument because it has taken a few turns over the years. The top is German Spruce, the back and sides are German maple, the neck is Cuban cedar, the fingerboard, facecap and binding are ebony and the bridge is Brazilian rosewood, The finish is French polish of Thai seed laq and Kusmi button shellac with platina and copal. La Morena is a Rosewood /Cedar version.
