1980 Miguel Rodriguez CD/PR
|Back & Sides:
The classical and flamenco guitars of Miguel Rodriguez
have been the favorite pick of many leading concert artists, most notably all members of the Romero family. In actuality, when speaking of Miguel Rodriguez, one is really making reference to a family of four guitar builders spanning three generations.
This is a first-rate instrument from one of the 20th century's most revered luthiers. It has enormous power, excellent sustain, very fast attack (like a flamenco). In spite of the long scale, this particular instrument is very easy to play; you hardly notice the size of the neck. The very interesting "pink rosewood" (palo rosa) is stunning with the light/dark contrasts. These instruments are played by numerous concert players around the world most notably, the Romero family, who have been using Miguel Rodriguez guitars since the early 1960s.
