Manuel Rodriguez Sr., internationally renowned for his classical guitars, passed away on Christmas day,  aged 82.

Rodriguez, the grandson of flamenco guitarist Manuel Rodriguez Marequi and son of classical luthier Manuel Rodriguez Perez, learned the art of constructing a guitar firsthand.

His apprenticeship began at the age of 13 in Madrid and after operating in his own shop in Spain, he emigrated to Los Angeles in 1959 opening a business there.

Rodriguez resided in Los Angeles for nearly 15 years, making guitars for professionals, Hollywood actors, teachers, and students before moving back to Madrid in 1973.

Manuel Rodriguez passed the art of guitar-making to his two sons, Manuel Jr. and Norman, who continue the business.
