This instrument owes it's inspiration to the guitars made by Antonio de Torres


most of my guitars have bridge with 12 holes for good break angle and ease of re-stringing.
(see specification for each guitar)

Body Volume:
11.4 litres
This refers to the approximate internal capacity of the soundbox and gives. for comparison, a more accurate size of the different models that I make.
ie if the body cavity were filled with a liquid this is how many litres it would hold.
