Plan, 1888 Antonio de Torres, short scale
Many guitar makers find it interesting to build a small guitar, in contrast to a full-size guitar. This is an interesting design to follow - the small guitar has a surprisingly vibrant and penetrating sound, especially in the treble range. The smaller volume of air contained inside the soundbox means that the bass range is less full, but provided a well-balanced instrument is constructed, the result is usually very pleasing.
Drawing by Roy Courtnall Summerfield.
