Here is a recent project, a replica of Torres' famous "paper mache' guitar FE 14." Actually it's made of what we would today call card or poster board. Instead of speculating on the reasons why he made this guitar, I thought it might be worthwhile to build one and share my observations. A running description of the process and additional photos are posted at: http://www.luthiersforum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=10101&t=17618
