How it works with Klarna.


David „José” Rubio is one of the most famous English guitar makers. After having moved to Sevilla and then to Madrid, to learn flamenco guitar performance, he developed a strong interest for guitar making. It is in New York, USA that he opened his first own workshop in 1963. His first meeting with Julian Bream happened a few month later and is the starting point of a close friendship. Julian Bream played several of Rubio’s guitar, noticeably a very similar guitar to this one: a 1966 instrument on which he recorded “Julian Bream and his Friends” (1968). From 1967 on, D. J. Rubio moved back to England. He stayed until 1969 in Julian Bream’s house in Semley before opening a workshop near Oxford in 1969. Not only did he build guitars, but also lutes (played by Julian Bream), vihuela, theorboes, harpsichords, violas da gamba, baroque guitars, etc. He eventually moved his workshop to Cambridge in the 1980s

This exquisite guitar, built by the esteemed Paul Fischer, is a splendid example of craftsmanship in the English guitar building scene. Stamped with a “PF” on the heel inside, it carries the signature of Fischer, a luthier known not only for his skill but also for his innovative contributions to guitar making, including his “taut” model. This particular instrument is an exceptional representation of a “Rubio” guitar, flawlessly executed to mirror the classic characteristics associated with Rubio’s work. It showcases the iconic rosette, head shape, and plantilla that are hallmarks of Rubio’s designs, reflecting a deep reverence for traditional craftsmanship while infusing it with Fischer’s distinctive style.

The materials selected for this guitar are nothing short of exquisite. The back and sides are crafted from CITES certified Brazilian rosewood, a material known for its striking appearance and tonal quality, sourced from Rubio’s famous stock of wood. This choice of wood contributes significantly to the guitar’s tonal richness, offering a thick and resonant sound with incredible sustain, particularly noticeable in the higher registers. The guitar’s volume is perfectly balanced, powerful yet not overwhelming, making it ideally suited for a variety of performance settings, from intimate recitals to larger concert venues. Additionally, this instrument embodies the beauty and lyricism synonymous with the finest Rubio guitars, making it a coveted piece for both performers and collectors. In terms of condition, the guitar has been well-maintained, with several professionally repaired cracks on the soundboard and a lacquer finish on the top that exhibits the common crackling pattern, adding to its vintage charm.
