Featuring a carefully chosen, solid Canadian cedar top and laminated Indian Rosewood back and sides, the Rodriguez C Cutaway model is a beauty to behold and play. The headstock is Indian rosewood, the neck is Honduras Cedar reinforced with Ebony, and the fingerboard is Ebony. Gold-plated tuners and Silver-plated frets are installed to last a lifetime.
The Rodriguez C Classical Guitar is hand crafted and glued to create precise balances. From the invisible careful sanding, even inside the body, that ensures the finished instrument's purity of tone, to the beautifully unique rosette inlays around the soundhole and on the back of the neck, each guitar is a credit to its luthier and worthy of being handed down from one generation to another.
The tone, resonance and beauty of fine guitars are all dependent upon the wood from which they are made. The wood used in the construction of Rodriguez guitars is carefully chosen and aged to guarantee the highest quality. No wood is purchased before the tree has been cut down, and at least 2 years must elapse before the tree is turned into lumber. The wood has to be well cut from the log. The grain must be close and absolutely vertical. The shop is totally free from humidity.
For the neck, Rodriguez uses cedar from Honduras as preferred over heavy Mahogany. The Honduras Cedar used is very hard and stiff, but at the same time, light. Necks are reinforced with 2 Ebony strips on the underside of the fingerboard to give total rigidity and to eliminate movement cased as a result of the aging of the classical guitar.
