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. Although completely different from his classical models in terms of construction, sound and design, this blanca shares the same beautiful 18-hole bridge style and rosette. It has a thinner body than the classical model, and a very cleverly shaped tap-plate. Like the blanca, it has a proper flamenco bridge and neck setup. Soundwise, it is crisp with an aggressive attack and shocking volume. The flamenco guitars of Rafael Moreno are among our favorite new flamenco instruments, and are simply incredible guitars for the money.
