This Cervantes Rodriguez PE, from the Cervantes Studio Series is built with Palo Escrito for the sides and back, solid cedar for the top; mahogany for the neck with an ebony fingerboard.

The Cervantes Rodriguez PE is built in the traditional style after the work of Manuel Rodriguez II, who worked in Madrid, in his own shop and in the shop of Jose Ramirez II.   His descendants are still building today.

While the new Cervantes guitars are very traditional in their approach, they have a subtle but rather meaningful improvement – the fretwire used is higher, wider and harder than what is typically used on classical guitars.   There are two main practical effects from this change.  First, the frets will take longer to wear out, and second, the slight increase in mass adds to the clarity of the tone and sustain of the note with less effort required from the player.

Additionally, this Cervantes Rodriguez PE sports another almost invisible, but certainly audible improvement – the nut and saddle are compensated to improve intonation throughout the fingerboard.   The Gotoh tuners are very smooth, and tuning is quick and easy.

The new Cervantes guitars are very well built and very good sounding, with rich, full tone, plenty of volume and are highly responsive.
