My Latest Student's Build- 1977 Miguel Rodriquez Jr.

Post by romanticguitars » Sun Jun 18, 2017 3:03 pm

My latest student is finishing this guitar and she stuck to the plans with a couple exception. She has the onset of arthritis and wanted a custom neck to help especially with barr chords. So it is spruce top, Indian rosewood B&S. At the nut 46mm, 650 scale, 16 radius. Sound port, which is the third guitar with a port to leave my shop in the last couple years. She has some final cleaning up, sanding etc. and I'll ad a finished photo later. The soundboard will be FP and the rest Tu=Oil. (BTW Any cosmetic defects you see in these photos have been cleaned up!) :)

Very nice work of your student! I was strugling with the idea of making one on the Rodriguez style too..

Thank you! Interesting bracing and it sounds beautiful... and most importantly she built something she can enjoy playing. !

I wonder what happens with the triangle area that is created between the LTB and the diagonal TB, does it vibrate at high frequency, is it dead? have run chladni test to see what happens there?
