A serious starter Spanish nylon-string guitar in 3 sizes.

The Caballero 8 is a beginner guitar with all the playability and tone you would expect in a fine Spanish-style nylon-string acoustic guitar from Manuel Rodriguez, including a solid spruce top, mahogany back & sides, a mahogany neck with a rosewood fingerboard, and a beautiful gloss finish. The Cabellero 8 is offered in three sizes - the Cab8 Cadete (3/4 size), Cab8 Senorita (7/8 size), and the full size Cab8S. All of these models confirm to the Spanish size standard

Aesthetic appointments include tortoiseshell body binding, Silver-plated tuning machines, and a wood rosette soundhole inlay. Rodriguez guitars are known for their high level of craftsmanship and purity of tone. You would be hard-pressed to find another Spanish acoustic guitar of comparable quality at this price.

Case sold separately.

  • Manuel Rodriguez Cabellero 8S 3/4 size guitar

    As reviewed by Wallace Hiraoka on 3/8/2014

    This is my first review ever on a guitar. The construction is great, materials as published, and is made in China. Some additional specs (in.): overall len=33; scale=22; body len=15, depth=3 1/8, 3 1/4; width nut=1 15/16; width 12th fret=2 5/16; upper bout=9 3/16; lower bout=11 15/16. I think I'd buy the 7/8 size if I had to do it over, although I can play this in the classical position comfortably also. Glad I didn't get a guitalele which I also considered. Comes with great strings, standard tuning. Looked at quite a few Youtube videos on smaller scale guitars before deciding on this one. It arrived in 4 days, double boxed, packed to perfection. Very pleased with Guitar Center prices, customer service and shipping time. Would buy from them again.
