Overview

The Manuel Rodriguez FF Flamenco Style Nylon String Guitar is the embodiment of three generations dedicated to the art and science of crafting flamenco and classical guitars. The care and attention to detail is evident, from the unique headstock to the colorful wood rosette.

Using solid cypress for the back and sides, and solid German spruce for the top, the FF Flamenco is light with an aggressive sound. To facilitate rapid solo runs, the action is lower than standard classical guitars. The guitar is also fitted with a transparent "tap plate" or "Golpeador" above and below the soundhole to protect the spruce top from heavy strumming and tapping.

Each Rodriguez 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 two 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.

Every Rodriguez guitar features a multi-colored wood rosette, as exquisite as the sounds that issue from it. Their intricacy and beauty signify the attention to detail that characterizes every Rodriguez guitar.

For the top, Rodriguez has experimented with other Spruce woods from various parts of the world including North America, Canada, Alaska, Russia and Sweden, but the spruce from Central Europe is unique.

For the neck, Rodriguez uses cedar from Honduras as preferred over heavy mahogany. There are many kinds of cedar, as the name is used on so many continents. The Honduras cedar used is very hard and stiff, but at the same time, light. Necks are reinforced with two 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 guitar.

Rodriguez FF

By Brian Lowery

from Sharpsburg,GA

Comments about Manuel Rodriguez FF Flamenco Style Nylon String Guitar:

Quite dissapointed in this guitar. I received the first one and it had extreme fret buzz. Turns out the neck was warped. They sent another and it still has fret buzz. I havent made a final decision to keep this instrument. I'm waiting to see how GC handles the situation this time around. I'm confident GC will take care of me, but I dont have a lot of confidence in the Rodriguez brand at this point in time. Its a beautiful guitar, but worthless as far as its playability.
