Manuel Rodríguez Guitars intros Flamenco Moderna FLMOD500 & FLMOD550

Manuel Rodríguez Guitars has announced the introduction of the acoustic-electric Flamenco Moderna Series.

Flamenco Moderna FLMOD500 & FLMOD550

The culmination of over 100 years of traditional Spanish guitar design and construction, these versatile flamenco guitars combine a sleek, low-profile neck and thinner body with premium Fishman® electronics. These refined features make Flamenco Moderna guitars an ideal choice for steel string and electric players seeking to expand their tonal range with the warmth and softness of nylon strings.

With two models distinguished by the careful selection of their unique wood combinations, Flamenco Moderna guitars feature a thin profile and single cutaway

to provide easy access to all 19 silver-plated frets on a fingerboard of Indian rosewood. The onboard Fishman Clásica III electronics package is optimized for nylon string tonality and features an easy-to-read chromatic tuner.

The FLMOD500 features walnut back and sides with solid Canadian red cedar top, producing a warm, round tone. For players who prefer more snap and brightness, FLMOD550 combines solid select spruce top with back and sides of flame maple. Both guitars feature a gloss finish and antique gold-plated machine heads on a Rosewood overlay headstock. The guitars are strung with premium D’Addario® ProArte EJ45 strings.

“Flamenco Moderna guitars carry a rich heritage of classic nylon string tone and playability, but with a thoroughly modern feel,” says Rick Gagliano, Product Merchandising Manager for Manuel Rodríguez Guitars. “These beautiful, unique instruments represent an exceptional value for guitarists looking to expand their tonal repertoire.”

The Flamenco Moderna Series models carry a street price of $499.99 USD, and are available at all Guitar Center stores, through Musician’s Friend, and online at guitarcenter.com.
