Cordoba Rodriguez

Cordoba Rodriguez

Brand: Cordoba | Stock Id: CORDOBA-RODRIGUEZ

Handmade in a boutique workshop in 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. It offers an instant responsiveness and a big, explosive attack at the beginning of every note.

The Rodriguez Story

Why Rodriguez?

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. We 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.

Cordoba’s Approach

Córdoba embarked on designing the Córdoba Rodriguez by examining an authentic 1970s Rodriguez from the inside out. With a goal of understanding the essence of this iconic guitar, Córdoba studied wood thickness, bracing designs, material choices, wood grains, and vibration patterns. The combination of Córdoba’s own luthiers’ expert hands, trained eyes, and intuitive ears lead to an examination that was part science and part feel. After listening to and playing these guitars for hours on end, Córdoba fully analyzed the balance, resonance and response of the Rodriguez to fully inform their own design choices.

Construction

Córdoba’s small team of skilled luthiers has added modern refinements such as a truss rod, geared tuning machines and a breathable nitrocellulose finish to make this a guitar for contemporary players. A hardshell humidified archtop case is included.
