Rubio, Vasquez: VASQUEZ RUBIO

(Item ID: VASQUEZ RUBIO    Serial#: 52715)

House Brand VASQUEZ RUBIO "Estudio" Classical with Palo Escrito and Spruce and 640mm Scale

From the Guitar Salon website:

"German Vazquez Rubio (also known as G.V. Rubio) has been making guitars for over forty years and has developed his own signature sound that guitarists have come to love. He was born in 1952 in Paracho, Mexico where there is an abundance of fine luthiers (with few exceptions all of the finest guitars in Mexico come from Paracho). German's first formal training began at eleven years old when he left school to help support his seven siblings and work for his uncle Manuel Rubio at his workshop. There even at his young age he made a conscious effort to make guitar building his life's work. In 1968 at the age of sixteen he made his first concert level guitar (hence his label reads 'desde 1968"). German has since been able to learn from many different master builders such as Felix Manzanero, Jose Romanillos and Thomas Humphrey. He now resides in Los Angeles, California where he builds a variety of both classical and flamenco models."

This 2015 Estudio model G.V. Rubio is the first example of this fine luthiers work that we have had in our store, and upon seeing and hearing it, one is immediately impressed by its excellent build quality which provides easy playability and its fresh, crisp, open sound which is balanced, responsive, and inviting. That his concert level guitars are played by many of today's top performers is easy to understand given the high performance standard of this more modestly priced Estudio model guitar.

This guitar has no structural issues to report. However, at some point it suffered an unfortunate encounter with an object that fell and glanced across its top leaving some minor indentations marking its path. In addition there is some minor finish wear around the sound hole and behind the bridge. Of course, these cosmetic blemishes have no bearing on the guitar's quality of performance, but, absent these, one would readily rank the condition of this very attractive guitar as excellent.

This guitar includes an arch top hardshell case. (used)
