Unrelated to Miguel Rodriguez of Cordoba, Granada-based builder Rafael Moreno Rodriguez is one of the top up-and-coming makers from Andalucia. His flamenco guitars are played prefessionally by his close friends Pepe and Juan Habichuela. This guitar is great all around, from the impeccable workmanship to the sound and playability. Although completely different from his classical models in terms of construction, sound and design, it shares the same beautiful 18-hole bridge style, rosette, and Indian rosewood strip on the back. It has a thinner body and a very cleverly shaped tap-plate, as well as a proper flamenco bridge and neck setup. This is a dedicated flamenco guitar throughout, as is the sound - very loud, raw and throaty, yet still clear and beautiful. This dry, aggressive sound quality and beautiful aesthetics really make this guitar stand out.
