Sawdust from Spruce and Cedar has been in the Rubio family's blood for generations. With German Vazquez, the blood runs thick: under his hands traditional materials and techniques dovetail into gorgeous instruments for both the eye and the ear. This 2014 Custom Nylon Archtop Crossover is a powerful example of that prowess at work--African Blackwood and German Spruce offer depth and clarity, and the custom C profile neck, with its 14 frets to the body and Venetian Cutaway, is pillow-soft and accessible for the left hand.

For the player craving an artisan-quality crossover nylon, this Rubio is perfect. The play feel of the custom neck will be familiar to any steel string player, just as the rich clarity of the bass strings will be familiar to any classical player. The best of both worlds bound up in one guitar! Rubio french polished the entire guitar for maximum resonance and installed a Fishman Matrix Infinity pickup (with volume and tone controls) to guarantee that you'll never have to put this guitar down, regardless if you're at home or on stage.

2014 Rubio Guitars Custom Nylon Archtop -  Crossover Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"Fantastic! This is a wonderful crossover nylon string which feels like a steel string but has the clarity and warmth of its classical cousin. The neck profile plays like butter." - Paul Heumiller

"I was really impressed with this guitar. I don't own a nylon crossover, but if I was in the market this might be at the top of my list. It is so comfortable to play and the sound is pure and sweet." - Al Petteway
