A Visit from an Antonio de Torres Guitar

On June 20, one of my customers brought by an original Torres made in 1883. The guitar sounded great though it obviously had lots of restoration work. I checked the Romanillos entry of this particular guitar and most everything matches his description except the bit about the four piece top. He did mention a story about the guitar needing quite a bit of repair due to someone sitting on it. Why someone would sit on a guitar is well beyond the scope of my imagination.
