Michael Cadiz is a Seattle, Washington, native, who moved his workshop to Graz, Austria, in 2016. He built his first guitar at the age of 15. He feels profoundly grateful for Robert Ruck, who invited him to stay for a while in his workshop to share his philosophy and approach to guitar building and from whom he learned a lot. He also received a great support from the Seattle builders Rick Davis and Greg Oxrieder.
What an incredible guitar! This instrument, built on the model of José Luis Romanillos’ guitars, is amazingly faithful to the style of the great master. This guitar shows an extraordinary know-how, both in terms of marquetry and acoustic properties. It is perfect in every detail. The beauty of the wood is underlined by the purity of the French varnish and by the elegance of the Rodgers silver tuners. It is a very light and spontaneous guitar with a brilliant endless sound that offers a fantastic playing ease. The subtlety of the sound colours and the timelessness of its timbre place this guitar at the highest level of contemporary lutherie.
