Manuel Rodríguez E-65 Ecología Classical Guitar

The Manuel Rodriguez E-65 Ecología Classical Guitar is a remarkable instrument that pays homage to the traditions of European guitar making while also embracing environmental consciousness. This guitar is part of the ECOLOGÍA series, a range that follows the heritage of constructing guitars using locally available woods, reminiscent of the techniques employed by previous generations. In this series, Manuel Rodriguez employs European woods such as spruce, walnut, maple, and acacia, avoiding the use of tropical woods.

The E-65 model adheres to these principles while offering a simple and affordable option for musicians who value both their music and the environment. The guitar's top is crafted from solid spruce, providing excellent tonal qualities, while the back and sides are made of laminated walnut. The fingerboard and bridge are constructed from acacia, and the guitar features an environmentally friendly water-based ecological lacquer finish, enhancing its overall sustainability.

Luthier Luluier Rodríguez III, a part of the second oldest guitar manufacturer in Spain, brings a cosmopolitan perspective to his instruments, blending tradition with modernity in his craftsmanship. The guitar features the Dovetail neck joint system, a maple neck, and a nut made of Bonoid. The Van Gent special black machine heads ensure stable tuning, and the fingerboard is made of acacia. It comes with high-quality HANNABACH 815 HTC Silver-Special Carbon trebles, high-tension strings, contributing to the guitar's outstanding tonal characteristics.

This guitar embodies a commitment to tradition, sustainability, and excellent craftsmanship, making it an ideal choice for musicians who seek an affordable yet environmentally responsible option without compromising on quality.

Experience the blend of heritage and eco-consciousness with the Manuel Rodriguez E-65 Ecología Classical Guitar, a testament to tradition and environmental responsibility.
