Rosewood for the back and sides and impeccable craftsmanship.

The Rodriguez model C1V marries Rodriguez's long-standing tradition of impeccable craftsmanship, old-world building techniques, and superior sound to an instrument of remarkable value. The rosewood back and sides combine with a Solid Canadian cedar top for instant great tone that doesn't need to be broken in. Custom accents like a wood rosette and mahogany binding make the guitar a visual standout, while traditional construction techniques like a true Spanish heel make the C1V a great value. Case sold separately.

      Comments about Manuel Rodriguez C1V Cedar Top Classical Guitar:

      An inexpensive way to get semi-explosive overtones in the high end, and a room-filling playing experience. For comparison, I have a Yamaha c40 and expensive $2000 solide brazillian rosewood backed european spruce top lattice braced explosive classical. This is a great way to get some of that sensitive explosive touch on the cheap. Definitely more than twice the guitar of say a Yamaha 101 . And the solid cedar top will age it well. Too bad the other review is hung up on details. Hey, it's made in China and designed and set up by Rodreguez with sweet action out of the box. What more could you ask for in this price range.

      Comments about Manuel Rodriguez C1V Cedar Top Classical Guitar:

      Rosette doesn't look hand inlaid. It looks like a decal. Head stock and nut are not fitted very well, there's a gap between the top of the nut and where it fits into the head stock
