How to Make a Box Sing, Part 2

Here is a video of Kyle Throw playing the Torres/Santos style guitar that I finished this summer. The guitar has a Engelmann spruce top with California laurel back and sides, 650mm string length.

This guitar is very responsive, very loud and is capable of many musical nuances, with proper playing and care it will continue to improve and become a magnificent guitar!

Kyle performs the Fandanguillo from the Suite Castellana by Federico Moreno Torroba.

  1. Congratulations to Kyle for the excellent performance of that tricky piece and owning a new wonderful instrument! In the slow passages it was easy to hear how expressive and sweet the sound is. Congratulations to the builder, as well, for connecting with young talent.
