I like your site very much, but this particular video doesn’t seem to be working.
Hi Franck, it should be working now.
It’s been so many years now since I didn’t have nails, I’m very curious about playing without them. Of course, it’s impossible if you play with other guitarist’s on a regular basis, I’d never be able to keep up the sound. Nice recording.
I am without nails at the moment to reinforce technical and tone issues.
I sure don’t sound like that…, but wish I did.
I do plan on working with Mr. Thames to have a guitar made in the next few years.
There is a very nice vid of Lieske playing a very special Torres! (piece starts at 0:58)

Beautiful song, and great tone, never heard someone without nails sound like this. I wonder if Mr. Thames did something special with this guitar to accomadate. The bridge is bit strange, did Torres make a 12 hole bridge? And whats with all the extra nut material extending over the bass side? Whatever it is, I’m sure Mr. Thames had good reason to do so!
