As I said in the post, this guitar belongs to a woman in Barcelona, who shared a photo with me, and told me about its connection to Francisco Tarrega--so this is the only photo for the moment I have to share. Since I haven't seen it I can't speak to its sound-- but I have played a number of his guitars and they remind me very much of Torres, but perhaps with not quite the same power. The 1/4 does mean a string length around 500mm, and would be tuned like a Term guitar, and would have been strung with gut strings originally. Manuel Soto y Solares were friends, and did some business-- including selling parts to one another, and if Jose Ramirez III reported rumor is true (See Romanillos book on Torres), Torres may have built guitars for Soto y Solares (but as Richard Brune in a letter to me) observes there is no evidence of this, and no examples have yet been found. Even so, Manuel Soto y Solares influence on guitar making, particularly on flamenco guitars was considerable-- he developed an "ahuevado" domed top that Francisco Gonzalez and Jose Ramirez I in Madrid copied and offered.
