Description

A gorgeous Manuel Rodriguez classical guitar from 1982 and signed by Manuel Rodriguez. This incredible instrument sings with a sweet, robust tone thanks to the Indian Rosewood back and sides and Cedar top. Rodriguez put a new top on in 1988 and it is also signed by Manuel. The Brazilian Rosewood bridge ii fully intonated with moveable saddles and beautifully ornamented with an Abalone tie block. This beautiful guitar plays like butter with fast, smooth action that augments its natural tonality.

This is one powerful guitar. Just a few minutes on this one and you realize why Rodriguez guitars are known for volume and dynamic range. This one we re-topped in 1988 by Manuel Rodriguez and has a fully compensated saddle, perhaps customized for an important client? It certainly is a wonderful guitar full of life and music.
