1963 Miguel Rodriguez SP/MP
|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 is a monster classical built by Miguel Rodriguez Jr., arguably one of the finest luthiers of the twentieth century. Few maple instruments from this workshop appear with any regularity, so this is a rare treat. It has all the qualities of the well-known rosewood guitars from this period, including a big sound that resonates off the top, back and sides. It has a loose, loud and penetrating sound with big basses and crystal clear trebles. If anything, the maple back and sides gives it a nice warm glow to the sound. This is a superb example of a great Andalucian guitar by one of history's greatest builders.
