Tradition in look and sound.

The TRADICION series combines the typical features of classical guitar making in several respects. This begins with the choice of materials: solid cedar is used for the top, while the back and sides are made of mahogany. This results in a traditional look that is pleasantly underlined by a water-based eco-matt varnish.

In terms of sound, the instruments, which are handmade in Europe, are moderately tuned and designed for a balanced sound. This is ensured, among other things, by the traditional neck construction with dovetail joint, which guarantees not only high stability but also very good vibration transmission.

A special feature of all Manuel Rodríguez 4/4 guitars is the GEWA armrest, which offers two definite advantages: With its rounded shape, it ensures a particularly pleasant playing feel and allows the top to vibrate freely over the entire surface, as it prevents damping by the right arm being placed on top.

More sound, more comfort.

German-made Hannabach 815HTC strings are wound at the factory and round off the sound concept of this series perfectly.

The instruments of the Manuel Rodríguez TRADICION series are available in all five commercially available sizes up to the small 1/4 guitar.

For more than 115 years, GUITARRAS MANUEL RODRÍGUEZ has been making instruments in the tradition of the Madrid School of Spanish guitar making.

The family business was founded in Madrid in 1905, making it the second oldest guitar manufacturer south of the Pyrenees. Today's Luthier Manuel Rodríguez III grew up in California and Spain and is already the third generation to practise his craft. The cosmopolitan way of life that so characterises Manuel is reflected in each and every instrument. Their unique grace and unmistakable sound result from the skilful combination of the tradition and modernity of the craft, the history and future of music, and the craftsmanship and experience of the builders.

"We live the development of our guitars with passion, through which we have increasingly succeeded from generation to generation in perfecting a centuries-old manufacturing technique more and more." - Manuel Rodriguez III.

In cooperation with GEWA music, Manuel Rodriguez has now redesigned his guitar series from the ground up, setting clear quality standards. Not least because of this, ECOLOGÍA, TRADICÍON, ACADEMIA, SUPERIOR and MAGISTRAL are manufactured in Europe under his personal supervision. The SIGNATURE LEGACY uniques even come directly from Spain, where the master still runs his own workshop.

GUITARRAS MANUEL RODRÍGUEZ - Rich in sound, history and beauty since 1905.
