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 is a first-rate instrument from one of the 20th century's most revered workshops and the final guitar built for Celedonio Romero, legendary patriarch of the Los Romeros family and quartet. The tone itself is gorgeous - silky, smooth with deep, powerful basses and thick, weighty trebles. The separation between voices is superb and is achieved without the loss of warmth. It also lives up to its reputation and has enormous power as well as quick flamenco-like response giving it great bounce and instant presence. Despite its longer scale, playability is very easy, due largely to its slender and comfortable neck shape. This guitar was bequeathed to Celedonio's three sons - Celin, Pepe and Angel, and all 3 brothers have finally agreed to let the guitar find its next home. Celedonio played the guitar in many concerts, so it does have some very modest wear but is in perfect structural and playing condition with no cracks and no repairs. An outstanding example by one of the great makers in history. Very desirable for its quality (and quantity) of sound, superb playability and unmatched classic aesthetic – collector and performer alike will find this to be an extremely exciting instrument to own and play.
