Description: Acoustic Guitar - Rubio Double back torres
I am a great fan of G. V. Rubio and own many of his guitars but have decided to downsize my huge collection. This guitar is a Double Backed Arched Torres model hand-crafted by Master Luthier German Vazquez Rubio. German Vazquez Rubio guitars are played by professional guitarists such as Jason Vieaux, John Homquist, Rod Stuckey and Liona Boyd. German's guitars stand out as one of the best values in the world -- exquisite materials, expert craftsmanship and exceptional quality in sound. I have owned one of his regular Torres models for years. Its always been one of my favorite guitars. But MR Rubio has taken the model to the next level with these slight modifications. My good friend told me this guitar is like my regular Torres but on steroids! Many luthiers have ventured into the double-top technology and in my opinion with mixed results. But I can honestly say Rubio has hit it out of the park with this model! I have owned two Rucks, two Sahlin's, a Guisanni's, a Field, a Khono... The list goes on and on!! This guitar is as good if not better than all the above. The guitar was open and huge sounding from day one. There is something to the double-top that gives an open sound soon after the strings are attach. Also putting a slight arch in the tops lets the builder use a slightly thinner piece of spruce which in terms increase the vibration and thus the sound. The specs are as follows: German spruce top with Brazilian rosewood back and sides. Just brilliant Brazilian rosewood I have never seen a piece like this. The guitar is just stunning to look at! All solid woods. All French Polish with scale length of 650 with a 53 nut. Beautiful ringing, clarity, and substance in the highest treble notes, deep bass notes that speak with authority, depth, and subtlety of overtone. And yes, the dynamic range is great, as you'd expect in a high end concert classical. The ease of play with his low profile neck is pronounced. This guitar is a concert level instrument in every way. The guitar is in excellent condition. No cracks, repairs or other problems. Just a few scraches on the top. The guitar plays like a dream. Check around. This guitar sells new for $7500.00 at dealers. Email for pictures. This is a rair opportunity to get Rubios top models at a reasonable price.
