Flamenco Blanca

 

These guitars are a modified version of a Miguel Rodriguez guitar based on the design of Eric Monrad.  They have the following innovations taught to me by Eric. A continuous lining connects the sides to the top, which creates a much stiffer "drum rim" effect, but without the added weight of laminated sides.  This allows for a thinner, lighter top, resulting in a more responsive and bright sound.  The bridge patch is replaced by two lattice braces, making the guitar louder and punchier. Each top is carefully measured for density, allowing me to customize the sound for each player's style.  I also carefully weigh the bridge and sand it down to a specific weight, ensuring an exceptionally responsive and explosive attack.  Each instrument is available with a German spruce or Western red cedar top, Monterey cypress or Spanish cypress* back and sides, Spanish cedar neck, and Brazilian rosewood bridge. Now, also available "lighter, stronger, louder" all wood doubletop.  Watch a demonstration of this unique innovation at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xJoO6AGLURA. It is available with planetary pegs or machine heads. This is a super light, highly responsive, bright and loud guitar.  You can watch Jason McGuire and myself playing and talking about my flamenco guitars at http://www.youtube.com/p/759B1E2B07442B86&hl=en&fs=1

Price: $5,800 (CA residents please add appropriate sales tax)

*Spanish cypress is available for $200 extra

*All wood doubletop additional $500

Flamenco Negra

Each top is carefully measured for density, allowing me to customize the sound for each player's style.  I also carefully weigh the bridge and sand it down to a specific weight, ensuring an exceptionally responsive and explosive attack. I recommend a spruce top, which balances nicely with the rosewood, but I'm happy to make it with cedar as well. They are available with Indian or Brazilian rosewood (please contact me for price and availability) back and sides, and Spanish cedar or mahogany neck. Now, also available "lighter, stronger, louder" all wood doubletop.  Watch a demonstration of this unique innovation at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xJoO6AGLURA. It is available with planetary pegs or machine heads. These guitars are warm, explosively loud, and beautiful to record with.  You can watch Jason McGuire and myself playing and talking about my flamenco guitars at http://www.youtube.com/p/759B1E2B07442B86&hl=en&fs=1

Classical Guitar

 

These guitars are based on the designs of Miguel Rodriguez and Eric Monrad. They have the following innovations taught to me by Eric. A continuous lining connects the sides to the top, which creates a much stiffer "drum rim" effect, but without the added weight of laminated sides. This allows for a thinner, lighter top, resulting in a more responsive and bright sound with greater volume and sustain. The bridge patch is replaced by two lattice braces, making the guitar louder and punchier.  Each top is carefully measured for density, allowing me to customize the sound for each player's style.  They are available with German Spruce or cedar top, Indian or Brazilian rosewood (please contact me for price and availability) back and sides, mahogany neck and Brazilian rosewood bridge. Available with elevated fingerboard and port.  This is an exquisitely warm, even, responsive and loud guitar.  Also, now available with spruce or cedar nomex composite doubletop.  This greatly enhances the responsiveness, volume, color palette, and articulation of the instrument.


Price: $6,500 (CA residents please add appropriate sales tax)
