There’s a ton of Guitars out there… but not all will fit you unlike a Custom-made guitar that’s made just for you.
And in your search for the one guitar, if you be lucky, if it leads you to the one luthier that’s just near you, it is like a dream come true.
At first, you know, at the back of your mind, the question hangs…
Is he really that good?
Is he really the one that can make you “The One?”
So… you pay a lot of visits to that Luthier’s Shop to find out.
Guitars may come in different sizes, shapes and colors and the degree to which one Luthier is capable of making sometimes play a big role in ones “judging.”
Well, in the course of ones visits a long time ago, one sight caught really left one in awe.
A nearly finished “Butterfly” shape Custom-made Acoustic Guitar in E. Rabago Guitar’s I saw!
Wow! This is really one of a kind, It’s not an everyday find!
And to think one luthier is capable of making this, he is surely one of the best there is!
How’d I really wanted to take pictures of it… but cellphones with camera’s weren’t around yet and I wasn’t able to bring any type of film camera to take pictures of it.
Such a “unique” acoustic guitar I’ve seen made so far, left me thinking, he might be the best guitar maker and luthier by far?
Some time passed and the guitar’s owner traveled, I just wondered where the guitar I marveled ended.
I never knew my search for that very unique, one of a kind, Custom-made Acoustic guitar that I saw a long time ago ended today.
I finally found it, thanks to a very reliable source I say!
So a few guitar’s I had were built and repaired for I finally found that Master Luthier!
Oh, how I’d really admire and look up to someone who is not only a great luthier but seems to be one of the world’s best custom guitar maker.
To top it all, our story doesn’t end here or there!
Lately, our Master luthier has done it again!
And it’s not about that Semi-Acoustic Guitar he made way back then…
But he was able to recently build an 8-String Classical Guitar for Sir Joemark Mocorro, an accomplished musician and classical guitar virtuoso.
Check out this video clip from Sir Joemark Mocorro playing his Custom-made 8-Strings Classical Guitar by E. Rabago Guitars. Playing 6 Strings to 8 Strings transition instantly (since he first got the guitar), this one’s played spontaneously out of muscle memory, his own rendition.
Man, talking about finding the right luthier that’s best for you.
Guess, we’re so lucky… in the Philippines… in Iligan City… We have one such talented and gifted Luthier as Sir Edgar Rabago!
