1964 Miguel Rodriguez SP/CY
|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 Jr. 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. Although built with cypress for the back and sides, this guitar is set up for classical playing but has the tone and responsiveness to accommodate both flamenco and classical styles of playing. It has had some very conservative repair work to repair some hairline cracks. Very desirable for a Rodriguez from this period.
