Overview: German Vazquez Rubio (sometimes referred to as G.V. Rubio, German V. Rubio, German Rubio, and German Vazquez) was born in Paracho, Mexico but has resided in the USA since the 1970s. For over twenty-five years Guitars International has been honored to offer to its customers the beautiful handcrafted classical and flamenco guitars of German Vazquez Rubio.

This musical gem is an exciting alternative to all laminated and solid body factory production (so called handmade) guitars from the U.S.A. and abroad. Indeed, these beautiful, truly handcrafted solid wood instruments by one of this country's finest, most experienced luthiers regularly out perform entry level concert instruments costing substantially more.

"I could easily play on one of these in recital!" a number of skeptical visiting international concert artists have exclaimed after auditioning a Vazquez Rubio Estudio Model guitar: large open sound, wide color palette, broad dynamic range, comfortable neck contour and easy action set up, good separation, accurate intonation, signed label. In sum, we have yet to play a smoother, more musical, more elegant sounding guitar for the money. (Learn more about this classical guitar maker).
