Ebony is a hard dense tone wood with silky smooth feeling. It’s a stable wood to be a fingerboard, adds brightness to the tone, and faster attack. Spanish Cedar neck added center ebony wood for strength and stability.
Bridge / Saddle
Traditional rectangular rosewood bridge helps support the string tension. Bone added at edge of bridge to protect string tension against the wood. The buffalo bone for the nut which is very hard and articulate. This helps the strings to vibrate and to have a deep resonance.
Torres used Moon spruce as a top, and Indian Rosewood as a back and side wood.
Moon Spruce – Originating from Switzerland, Moon spruce possesses a white snowy appearance and a straight, tight wood grain. It can accommodate different climates exceptionally, which makes it one of the more durable and stable tone woods. It takes time to open up but its sound will have rich overtones in tandem with complex tonal harmonics.
Solid east Indian rosewood back and sides offer lush high and full low tone. All solid guitars will open up nicely, and age well with season tone wood.
