Background

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.

Description

This is a first-rate instrument from one of the 20th century's most revered workshops. It has enormous power, excellent sustain, very fast attack (like a flamenco). Playability is very easy, not only due to the slender and comfortable neck shape, but also thanks to its 650mm scale, which is rare for Rodriguez. Additionally, this is one of the "Centenario" instruments, which features not only the finest of materials but additional inlay in the rosette and purfling. Apart for some minor playing wear, the guitar is in fantastic condition. Apart from the tuners which have been replaced with a beautiful set of Rodgers, all is original, including finish. These instruments are played by numerous concert players around the world most notably, the Romero family, who have been using Miguel Rodriguez guitars since the early 1960s. Very desirable for its quality (and quantity) of sound, superb playability and unmatched aesthetic beauty – collector and performer alike will find this to be an extremely exciting instrument to own and play.
