Made by the son of the great guitarist of the same name. It has huge volume and extremely quick response - although the tone is "classical", the response and playability is much like a southern Spanish flamenco guitar. The instrument is very lightly built, reminiscent of the legendary guitars that were built in the Miguel Rodriguez workshop in Cordoba, Spain. It features a very interesting "reverse fan" system, based on a 1970 Miguel Rodriguez guitar in the Romero collection, which Pepe has been able to study extensively. Playability is very easy with a smooth neck and large, rounded frets. The sound is thick and warm, yet very pure and separated, which is exceptional for a cedar top. Pepe’s private waiting list for new instruments is several years so we are delighted to have a guitar of his which is available now. This guitar although used, is in like-new condition with barely any signs of playing wear.
