    I agree with Ben, based on the cover and in comparison to the D hole Shopis I own, it sounds like one of Rodrigos guitars to me. They are special instruments, I also just ordered my second one.
    Hey Ian - what are you getting this time?

    And are we going to see you at Django in June?

    Been re-listening to Alicia after reading this thread. Mr Cook is so right, the tone is superb, and the smoothness between lead and comping is not something you hear that often. (Bireli's Move album springs to mind)

    Just as a point of interest, are all Rodrigo's guitars (off the shelf) built to Favino specs? Does he do an official line in the Selmer style specs?

    Rodrigo builds based on both selmer and favino patterns. I have a favino d and just ordered a selmer oval. Unfortunately no DIJ this year..

    And I have a Favino oval and am getting a Selmer D hole.

    Rodrigo also builds a unique electric archtop with a Charlie Christian pickup:

    ... as well as nylon string guitars, both gypsy and classical.

    I hadn't heard this CD before, but that guitar does sound nice on the clips I just looked up.
