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. 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. Materials are striking including a beautiful set of CSA rosewood with a strip of sapwood running down the center. 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 perfect structural condition with only some superficial signs of playing wear in the finish.
