Cordoba Releases New Loriente Collection

The Loriente Collection’s five distinctive models represent the best in traditional old-world Spanish guitar craftsmanship. Completely handmade in Spain, the guitars are constructed with the finest all solid tone woods, and adhere to the traditions and techniques of renowned Spanish guitar makers: Torres, Santos Hernandez, Manuel Ramirez, and Domingo Esteso. Select models are finished with a hand rubbed French Polish—a lightweight and resonant finish method used by violin makers since the early 1500s. Each guitar design adheres to the strict specifications of the classic Spanish guitar: the scale length is 650mm, nut width is 52mm, and the bracing is a Torres-style fan pattern that allows for thin and lightweight construction of the top, back, and sides. Street prices range from $1,699 to $4,300.
