Antonio Torres Jurado

Antonio Torres Jurado

Antonio de Torres Jurado (Almería, Andalucía 13 June 1817 – 19 November 1892) was a Spanish guitarist and luthier, and "the most important Spanish guitar maker of the 19th century."

Torres is as revered among guitarists as Antonio Stradivari is revered among violinists. It is with his designs that the first recognisably modern classical guitars are to be seen. Most acoustic guitars in use today are derivatives of his designs.
