❌SOLD❌ Ignacio M Rozas No. 114 CSA Rosewood Guitar French Polish, 1991


Instrument Categories: , ,

Here we have the wonderful and very well preserved Ignacio M Rozas No. 114 classical guitar, built in Madrid during 1991 at Calle Mayor 66, a few doors from the Contreras shop.

Ignacio M Rozas began building guitars in 1959, at age 16 as an apprentice to Jose Ramirez III and worked with him until 1969. In 1970, he began working with Manuel Contreras, also a veteran of the Ramirez shop, and stayed until 1987. In 1988, he opened his own shop, and retired in 2008.

This example, Ignacio M Rozas No. 114 has a natural construction resemblance to the Ramirez design and uses the traditional Spanish ‘slipper heel’ concept with the sides slotting into the neck. It features a European Spruce top, paired with Central South American Rosewood for the sides and back. The body blocks and neck are ‘Spanish Cedar’, which is neither Spanish or Cedar, but is Cedrela odorata, another wood native to Central South America. The fingerboard, bridge, and head plate and head cap are Ebony. The head is itself an interesting and unique design, as the upper shape is provided by an extra piece of Ebony attached to the Spanish Cedar neck. The tuners are by Fustero, with pearloid buttons and gold plating. There are four discreet position marker dots on the fingerboard edge, at frets 5, 7, 9 and 12.

The finish is French Polish. Overall, this guitar is in very good, clean condition. It appears to have been hardly played, so there is plenty of room for its voice to develop. Fret and finish wear are about as minor as it gets, and the action is presently set to a fairly low height.

A grey hard shell case is included with the Ignacio M Rozas No. 114.
