Description

This modestly priced model is a genuine GV Rubio guitar built in his Los Angeles-based workshop. It's a top-of-the-line student/entry-level concert instrument in every way. It features striking materials - most notably a beautiful set of palo escrito for the back and sides with generous amounts of contrasting sapwood. It sounds great, plays easily and represents a great value for the price.

Background

German Vazquez Rubio (also known as G.V. Rubio) has been making guitars for over forty years and has developed his own signature sound that guitarists have come to love. He was born in 1952 in Paracho, Mexico where there is an abundance of fine luthiers (with few exceptions all of the finest guitars in Mexico come from Paracho). German's first formal training began at eleven years old when he left school to help support his seven siblings and work for his uncle Manuel Rubio at his workshop. There even at his young age he made a conscious effort to make guitar building his life's work. In 1968 at the age of sixteen he made his first concert level guitar (hence his label reads 'desde 1968"). German has since been able to learn from many different master builders such as Felix Manzanero, Jose Romanillos and Thomas Humphrey. He now resides in Los Angeles, California where he builds a variety of both classical and flamenco models.
