The original SE43 was build by Antonio de Torres in 1883, it had a cedar neck with a 650mm scale fingerboard, spruce top & maple back & sides, it is known that this Torres guitar was one of his masterpieces and later on influenced the work of famous guitar builders like Manuel Ramirez, who repaired it in 1912 and Robert Bouchet who did some reconstruction work in 1950 on the same guitar.

This guitar now is part of the collection of the Musee Instrumental du Conservatoire de Paris, France. In terms of measurements and inside construction the SE 43 is very close to Tarregas last guitar the SE114 which was originally built with rosewood back & sides.

Made in the Milestone Luthier Centre, that was founded in the year 2013 by Wolfgang Jellinghaus & Michael Zhang.

The goal of the Milestone Luthier Centre is to rebuild the history of classic guitar making by selecting six different master builders from the past 230 years who set new standards for the guitar making in terms of construction & sound

The R & D centre is in Dortmund Germany & the guitar making workshop is in Guangzhou China
