Very happy to have been there when Anthony Gonzalez (Miguel from the Disney Pixar movie Coco) received GVR Real Coco guitar number 20! It was a birthday surprise from his mother and it was a very touching moment. Thanks to Guitar Salon International for having German Vazquez Rubio and I join in the surprise! Thanks to Felix Salazar for his always awesome pictures!

Senior Rubio,

In 1996 I was gifted with one of your student guitars for my final vows as a Sister of St. Joseph (the sisters who started Mount St. Mary's College...now University on Adams). Now 25 years later as my fingers can no longer play due to aging...I am giving this beautiful, sweet sounding instrument to my niece.
Your handmade guitar has brought me years of heart warming joy with its mellow and deep earth tones. This is quite an emotional moment for me because every time I played "my Rubio" I would say a little prayer of thanksgiving for you and for giving birth to my guitar...which became my dear friend.
You probably get lots of messages of gratitude like this...and I just want to add my appreciation. It has been an honor and a privilege to have played your guitar all these years. It brings me much joy in knowing my niece will now be playing the beautiful music that your creation gives to our suffering world.
Blessings to you and your family,
Donna CSJ

Bach - Suite 996 - Allemande Guitar: G.V. Rubio, Model "Elite"
Please, How would you value a 1964 Flamenco by Vincente Camacho, pupil of Modesto Borreguero? 8 out of ten on scale. I have seen that you are familiar with them. It is #4 and #5a was sold by Guitars International.
Excellent! I'd like to share this guitar sound
We want to give a Big Shout Out to Vazquez Guitar Shop!!
