Description

Here we have a custom, Mint condition custom Cornerstone guitar in Brazilian Roswood and Red Cedar by luthier Peter Marreiros. Originally built for renowned nylon string player Rodrigo Rodriguez, this steel string guitar has a 1 15/16" (49 mm) wide nut, making it ideal for someone transitioning from nylon to steel or the fingerstylist looking for a wider neck. The combination of Brazilian and Cedar gives this guitar incredible responsiveness and clarity, with truly pianistic note separation. And while the slotted headstock and 12 fret body joint hearken back to classical roots, this one has modern fingerstyle appointments like a Ryan style arm bevel, custom leaf-shaped soundport. This is a guitar that sounds stunning and can fill a large room by itself, ready to go on the main stage!

I had barely touched the strings on this thing and it already sounded like I was playing at middle volume on this one! I'm blown away by how responsive and clear it is, even when I tune it down to open C. This may be the first Cornerstone we've had in the shop, but I sure as heck hope it isn't the last. Can't wait to play it again soon!
 
This is a very interesting guitar. It has the balance of a classical guitar and the sparkle of a steel string. I found myself wanted to play light Jazz and Classical. This would be a really nice addition to any collection since it is truly a unique high end instrument.
