Bodhi, I had an opportunity to test a Southwell and Bortolozzo (Torres model) during the same sitting. Both excellent but I much preferred the Bortolozzo. I almost bought that guitar you mentioned. It was between the Bortolozzo and a 95' Ambridge. I decided to go with the Ambridge, the tipping point being the Ambridge was 640mm scale and I wanted to try a 640 since I've always played 650. The Bortolozzo is an excellent deal at the price it is for sale.
