All Rodriguez guitars are almost entirely handmade in a totally moisture-controlled environment. The traditional methods of hand forming and gluing are used to ensure each guitar acheives the perfection of a master built guitar, with no detail too minor.
The tone and resonance of the Rodriguez Model D Guitar is dependent on the wood it's made from. The timbers used in its construction were painstakingly chosen by grain, weight and density, from logs which have been cut for at least two years, carefully aged for between five and ten years, and matched in sets to guarantee the highest quality.
The carefully-selected solid Spruce top is the living, beating heart of the guitar, ensuring a balanced and powerful tonality. The Indian Rosewood bridge ensures the sound of the string and the dynamics of each player's style is fully transmitted to the body.
Using Honduras Cedar and Ebony for the neck, with an Ebony fingerboard accurately fretted with German silver nickel frets and intricately engraved European tuning machines, the Model D Guitar provides a superb playing experience. Dual-layer binding on the Special Order Model D DRG provides additional tone.
Alongside intricate details such as the handmade multicoloured soundhole rosette, Rodriguez guitars look as beautiful as they sound.
