Featuring a carefully chosen, solid Western Red Cedar top and laminated Indian rosewood back and sides, the C3 Classical Guitar is a beauty to behold and play. The headstock and fretboard are of Indian rosewood. Nickel-plated tuners and silver-plated frets are installed to last a lifetime. The body binding and wood rosette are exquisite.
The Rodriguez C3 guitar is handcrafted and glued to create precise balances. From the invisible careful sanding, even inside the body, that ensures the finished instrument's purity of tone, to the beautifully unique rosette inlays around the soundhole and on the back of the neck, each guitar is a credit to its luthier and worthy of being handed down from one generation to another
The C3 guitar features a multi-colored wood rosette, created with intricacy and beauty signifying the attention to detail that characterizes every Rodriguez guitar.
For backs and sides, Rodriguez uses Brazilian rosewood and Indian rosewood (Jacaranda). Brazilian rosewood has a beautiful color and design, making it ideal for an elegant concert classic guitar.
For the top, Rodriguez has experimented with other spruce woods from various parts of the world including North America, Canada, Alaska, Russia and Sweden, but the spruce from Central Europe is unique. Red Western Cedar is obtained from Canada and the Northwest United States. There are many different qualities and colors. As with spruce, stiffness, grain and weight are important.
For the neck, Rodriguez uses cedar from Honduras as preferred over heavy mahogany. There are many kinds of cedar, as the name is used on so many continents. The Honduras cedar used is very hard and stiff, but at the same time, light. Necks are reinforced with 2 ebony strips on the underside of the fingerboard to give total rigidity and to eliminate movement cased as a result of the aging of the guitar.
