Overview

The tone, resonance, and beauty of any fine guitar is dependent upon the wood from which it is made and the Rodriguez Model A Acoustic Guitar is a prime example having a solid Canadian cedar top, flamed maple back and sides, Honduras cedar neck, and an Indian Rosewood fingerboard. The neck of this beautiful nylon-string guitar is reinforced with two ebony strips on the underside of the fingerboard that give rigidity and eliminate movement caused by aging. Appointments include stained Indian rosewood binding, gold-plated tuning machines, wood mosaic soundhole rosette, and unique vintage matte finish.

Manual Rodriguez has been making distinctive guitars for the world's pre-eminent guitarists since 1905. Rodriguez guitars are known for their high level of craftsmanship and balanced, pure tone. Rodriguez uses only the finest tonewoods and handforms each guitar to precise tolerances. There is no detail too minor to merit attention in the creation of any Rodriguez guitar “ each one being as unique and individual as the musician who plays it.

Amazing and Beautiful

By ESPdude

Comments about Manuel Rodriguez Model A Maple Nylon String Acoustic Guitar - Vintage finish:

Okay, so it look like it's seen a flood. But don't let looks fool you!!! (I still personally think this is a nice looker). The wood is astounding, it gives resonance far beyond the expected, and just a rich, full tone. The neck is perfect, it is not glossed, and will not hinder any playing whatsoever. The fretboard is surprisingly thick, but all the more better. Fast, great sound, easy to play, and VERY, VERY LIGHT, this guitar is worth every penny.

Great sounding for the price

By Jon

from El Paso

Comments about Manuel Rodriguez Model A Maple Nylon String Acoustic Guitar - Vintage finish:

The instrument sings beautifully! Don't be fooled by how ugly it looks. A lot of people are also fooled by other guitars' high gloss finish, which just sufficates the sound. This instrument doesn't have a thick glossy finish. I was blown away when I played it. Without the heavy glossy finish, the instrument just came alive! The only thing I didn't like were the tuners, but for the price, a great instrument. If I had the money, I could see myself laying down $$$$ for one of these.

Don�ۡ���t be fooled by its appearance!

By Don

from Dania Beach, Florida

Comments about Manuel Rodriguez Model A Maple Nylon String Acoustic Guitar - Vintage finish:

I had been casually shopping for a nylon string classical guitar for about 2 years. I found many very nice instruments with good tone and playability but none that really spoke to me. I went into my Hallandale Guitar Center and saw this guitar on a stand on the shelf. I was intrigued by its dirty appearance and had to give it a play. This is one beautiful guitar, light as a feather and the matte finish allows the guitar to sing beautifully. I�ۡ���ve been playing this guitar for about a year now and use it specifically for instrumental specials. The tuners hold tune very well and for the price this is one amazing guitar.

this guitar knows how to sing

By Chuliang

from Sunnyvale, CA

Comments about Manuel Rodriguez Model A Maple Nylon String Acoustic Guitar - Vintage finish:

I found this guitar at guitarcenter.com and was attracted to its unique look and good reviews. So I went to a local Guitar Center in San Jose but the store did not have it. Instead they recommended a different model that is made of cedar wood(the sales person told me that they are the same, duh...), fortunately I found minor flaws in that different model, so I decided to just order it online without trying it. I received the order in a few days, at first I wasn't quite sure since the strings are not tuned. But after a couple rounds of tuning and playing, I was amazed about the sound quality of this guitar. This guitar really knows how to sing! The sound is rich and full, even when you gently stroke the strings, its soft whisper is full of sense. I inspected the guitar and found almost no flaws. The only problem that I found is that the tuning machines are not consistent, some are loose but some are tight, I'm not sure if that's normal or not. One review says that this guitar looks ugly, but I found it really beautiful and very unique. Especially the wood of the rib and back has a look of the ripple of pristine water.
