La Leona" (FE 04) is the fourth guitar built in 1856 by Antonio de Torres for Julian Arcas, he will make discover this instrument during his concerts in Spain and throughout Europe, including the one in Castellon in 1862 where he met his future pupil Francisco Tarrega.
Paolo Coriani knows the ancient instruments well, he had the opportunity to study the original guitar. Like the original it is built with a brass Tornavoz that does not go all the way to the back of the guitar. He also reproduced the shape of the original bridge. Also the back (in three parts) and the sides are made of lightly stained cypress. Paolo Coriani succeeded in restoring this so particular timbre, the basses are round and deep and the trebles are soft, woody and vibrant, the whole giving that deep and moving singing that made the identity of this new instrument.
