Manuel Adalid (b. 1951) is a second generation luthier, and the head luthier at Esteve. He is widely respected as one of Spain's most experimental and innovative guitar makers.  The guitars Manuel makes under his own name, however, are not production guitars. He maintains his own workshop within Esteve, where he carries on experiments, and personally makes his own guitars. This instrument is a copy of a Antonio Torres (1817-1892) classical guitar that captures more than a little of the character of the original. Made with German spruce and European maple, with a Torres rosette, this model is built exclusively for Zavaletas. It possess trebles that are focused, wonderfully clear, and truly sing. The mid-range is outstanding, and the the basses match and balance the other strings perfectly. This is just the kind of guitar that I love.
