1965 Miguel Rodriguez SP/IN (ex Pepe Romero)
|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 guitar was built by Miguel Rodriguez Sr. The tone is silky, smooth, very even and clean with dark, powerful basses and thick trebles which carry a lot of weight. The separation between voices is superb, and this is achieved without the loss of warmth. Rodriguez classical guitars are known to have a flamenco response to them, giving them great bounce and instant presence. Condition is impeccable with no cracks, no repairs and only the slightest of playing wear. It is entirely original, including finish. This guitar was originally purchased in 1965 by Pepe Romero, who played on it for many years. A letter from Pepe accompanies the instrument. Very collectible for a Rodriguez from this period.
