Who we are

Building guitars since 1905

We are tradition and modernity, art and experience. We are exotic woods, the smell of sawdust and varnishes. We are passionate about the creation of our guitars; generation after generation we have achieved the perfection of a century-old manufacturing technique. Our creations are proof of our strong commitment to Spanish culture, which has led us to having a presence in more than 120 countries. We create the essence of Spain and bring it to the whole world. We are music, we are culture, we are MR Guitars.

Tradition and modernity

Today, our company, whose origins date back more than a hundred years, is the second oldest in the world. However, at MR Guitars we always stay one step ahead. We were the first to bring the classical guitar to the United States and we were pioneers in the search for solutions to tuning problems thanks to the movable bridge. Our factory in Esquivias, Toledo, is a clear modern-day example. There, we have managed to produce an affordable product which remains fully hand crafted.

Art and experience

Our guitars, spirit of the most Spanish music, are made with the utmost care and attention by our experienced luthiers, the true stars of MR Guitars, experts in the manufacture of this instrument that represents the culture of an entire country. They are the people who handle the woods, who shape them with dexterity to then effectively join them together, thereby creating an instrument full of harmony. Our luthiers' maxim is to deliver the best sound in an instrument of infinite beauty.

Exotic woods

At Manuel Rodriguez Guitars we use the most delicate varnishes and wood from around the world to make our guitars. The whiteness of the spruce, the lightness of the Honduras cedar, the softness of the Indian or Madagascan rosewood, the density of the cypress, the vein of the surprising bubinga and the elegance of the sapele form the straight lines and curves of our instruments. Without a quality raw material, without choosing the best materials we wouldn't be able to obtain that very special sound and unique aesthetic.

MR always boosting innovation

Our team

MR Guitars is made possible by hundreds of people. Our company is what it is thanks to those who work for it every day. They are the ones who strive to offer the highest quality products and to make them reach to all corners of the world.


Our essence arises from the experience of several generations of luthiers who have loved the art of guitar making, infused with all that surrounds it So, more than a hundred years after its foundation, each of the luthiers who have joined the family, the sales team, the people responsible for management and administration, and all those who make the brand possible, all of us are committed to the original values of Manuel Rodríguez, who founded the house: tradition, art, beauty, sound and modernity.


MR Guitars is a lot of people, a lot of people who work for all those people who share the same values. Our commitment to the customer is that which has made us grow and improve with the years and we are aware that our products only have real value when other ears enjoy their sound, when the hands of a music lover of the music are those that make that sound.
