www.guitarfromspain.com/en/classical-guitars-studio/476-manuel-rodriguez-c12-classical-guitar.html The Pau Ferro wood of the Manuel Rodriguez C12 are mated to a solid cedar top for a rich tone with a roundness and warmth seldom found on instruments in this price range. The beautiful figuring of the Pau Ferro body, adds a bonus to the overall aesthetics of this guitar. A sapele neck combined with the Mongoy fingerboard will make sure the neck stays straight and true, and the wood rosette and binding will ensure great looks, along with an incredible sound.
The mix of woods is interesting. I wonder if the back and sides are as aromatic as my Martin's Morando fret board.
Pau Ferro is aka Morado (fretboard and bridge on my Martin) Saple is a oft-used substitute for mahogany Mongoy>>> an African wood
Body Material / top: Solid Canadian Cedar
Body Material / Back & Sides: Pau Ferro - I assume laminated
I was attracted to this guitar, but did not play it because kid was with me...It has 2" bone nut

RobertW, Sorry you didn't like the Classical guitar. But yes black spots on the strings, means time for new strings. I think the strings on all new guitars are cr--, that's my opinion anyway. Will you be giving this guitar a miss ?.
Now this is the short message, I spent 20 minutes writing the first reply, only to get a message saying " we have a problem try again", and the message was lost.
