David Rubio is well known for his eclectic output of fine musical instruments. In addition to guitars, Rubio was a master craftsman of Baroque "period" instruments, including lutes, viols, cellos and harpsichords. He is arguably the most important guitar maker to emerge from England – his instruments were played by Julian Bream very early on, and late in his career, the 8-string "Brahms" model was popularized largely by Paul Galbraith and members of the Brazilian Guitar Quartet. This particular instrument features materials that are absolutely exquisite including perfectly quartersawn European spruce and high-grade, straight-grained CSA rosewood for the back and sides. The tone is thick and rich with incredible sustain, especially in the higher registers. It also has the beauty and lyricism for which he is best known. We consider this instrument both a players dream and highly collectable.
