Classical Guitars by Giannini, Alvarez and Manuel Rodriguez

by richard boyle

I have three classical guitars, all from different manufacturers.

Alvarez - have owned this guitar for over 25 years. All solid wood: cedar top and mahogany back and sides.

Manuel Rodriguez FC - All solid wood: cedar top and Indian rosewood back and sides. Headstock and bridge are Brazilian rosewood.

Giannini - Built in 1968. Solid spruce top, solid Brazilian rosewood back and sides. My favorite.

I'm a big Giannini fan as my first guitar was a Giannini purchased in the early 60's. Unfortunately it was stolen when I returned from Vietnam in 1970.

I have had some classical training but don't consider myself a classical player. More into jazz; particularly Brazilian jazz.

Manual Rodriguez "D"
by: Anonymous

Purchased at Guitar Center. Geat tone however due to dips in the neck needed to be shimmed and can only be played with very high action or buzz with drive you nuts.
They exchanged it for me however the one they gave me was worst. the quality contol ofr the Rodriguez D is amazingly poor.
