Handmade in a the Cordoba boutique workshop in Oxnard, California, the Córdoba Rodriguez combines three generations of tradition with features that bring this guitar into the modern era.
Córdoba’s Rodriguez is built with a solid Canadian cedar top, solid Indian rosewood back and sides and a fan bracing pattern with a transverse brace. This gives the guitar a distinctively “Spanish” sound— warm, lush and round, with bouncing basses and fat, singing trebles. The Rodriguez offers an instant responsiveness and a big, explosive attack at the beginning of every note.
The Rodriguez comes with the Cordoba Arched-top Brown Humicase.
The Rodriguez family of guitar makers produced incredible instruments for nearly 100 years in the southernmost region of Spain—deep in Andalucia, in the picturesque Moorish city of Córdoba. The design for the Rodriguez guitar was honed in on a specific model from the 1970s era, when the Rodriguez guitars shifted to a build favoring an expansion in the size and depth of the body with fewer braces (5 rather than 7). The result is a guitar that pumps out sound in a lively, efficient manner with little effort on the part of the player. The Córdoba Rodriguez mimics its predecessor, built by Miguel Rodriguez Serrano, with its large yet lightweight build and immediate response and outstanding projection.
