Hi everyone!

I hate to part with it, but for sale is my beautiful Rodrigo Shopis. Favino size, spruce top, walnut neck and rosewood back and sides. My exclusive gigging guitar from when I bought it in 2015, until this past summer. Its a killer guitar, but just not the right voice for me. It's got a dry, traditional sound, with well rounded bass and even tempered midrange. It really shines on waltzes.
Its got some bumps and bruises, but is structurally sound and ready for action. There's a scuff on the headstock from a tuner, evidence of a strap button on the neck heel and a repaired veneer from a mishap in Africa with an ischell jack. All blemishes are pictured. Included is a Gator Transit Gig Bag. Guitar is located in Brooklyn, NY.

For some reason (no matter how many times I try) I cannot upload any photos. For the time being, email me at if you'd like to see any photos.

$3500 obo.

    Nice playing! I love Rodrigo's guitars. My first was a secondhand Favino style one similar to yours. I'm sorry I let it go, but I now have a custom built Shopis that I will never part with.
