The La Cañada series of guitars is a collaborative effort between master luthier Edmund Blochinger and Wolfgang Jellinghaus of the Milestones guitars which offer a variety replica of guitars of makers from the 18th -20th centuries. Blochinger has studied and evaluated several original Antonio Torres and Miguel Rodriguez instruments over the years and felt it was a great opportunity to take two of his Antonio Torres and one Miguel Rodriguez plans to Jellinghaus for the purposes of creating unique models. The first Torres model is based on a first-epoch Torres (FE 17 – ex Tarrega) and the other on a second epoch Torres from 1888 (SE 115 – ex Pujol). The plantillas and structural details are considerably different from one another and offer two distinct experiences of playing a contemporary guitar built in two of the great classics, vintage styles.
The Miguel Rodriguez model is based on legendary 1974 Churchdoor guitar, known as La Catedral which is own by Pepe Romero. The outstanding sound of this guitar is for playing any style of music from the classical and flamenco music.
At this price point are La Canada guitar series is a great value for the student or concert player on a limited budget.
Hand-built to Blochinger’s specifications in Jellinghaus’ workshop in China, these are small-production, concert-level instruments made with select and beautiful materials, French polished finish, and offered with either antiqued look or new look.
