A solid cedar top gives this traditional classical warm, full-throated tone.
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 the Manuel Rodriguez Jr guitar has been carefully selected and aged to guarantee the highest quality. This instrument features a solid Canadian cedar top and solid Indian rosewood back and sides for a rich, warm tone with powerful projection. The Honduras cedar used for the neck of this elegant concert classic guitar is very hard and stiff, but at the same time,every light. It is 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 instrument. The ebony fretboard is dressed with silver-plated frets to last a lifetime of playing. Deluxe Gold- and black-plated Rodriguez tuners are stable, precise, and are designed to last a lifetime. The nut and saddle are genuine bone. A Brazilian rosewood bridge enhances this instrument's tone and sustain. Appointments include an ebony headstock overlay, Indian rosewood binding, intricate wood inlayed top purfling, a wood flower rosette that is as exquisite as the sounds that issue from it, and a luxurious gloss finish.
The Manuel Rodriguez Jr. 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 inlay around the soundhole and on the back of the neck, this classical guitar is a credit to its luthier and worthy of being handed down from one generation to another. The Manuel Rodriguez Jr. model is an elegant, concert quality classical guitar that is a beauty to behold and play.

This is truly a wonderful concert quality guitar. The tenor, sustain and volume rival guitars at more than twice the price. The fit and finish are a testimony to a luthier who has gained the reputation for excellent craftsmanship. I own a spruce top (special order) and the cedar, both play so well it is at times difficult to decide which one to use.
