Needs set up with neck adjustment, action kind of high, and there is a little whitening in lacquering but there is no bubbling or cracking happening, that does not affect the sound or body whatsoever. So, only a slight esthetic that actually adds some character due to age of guitar

From the least to the most expensive models, Rodríguez guitars are almost entirely handmade.

Rodriguez still employs the traditional Spanish Heel construction technique, where the neck block is part of the base of the neck (rather than a separate block), and the back and sides are joined directly to the neck block, resulting in a solid neck joint and sturdy build.

No detail is too minor to merit attention. For example, the tuning machines are all handsomely and intricately cast, whether nickel-plated or gold-plated. Silver-plated frets from Germany are meticulously set into the fretboard and hand-filed so the strings lay a consistent distance above the fingerboard.

The neck and headstock of Rodríguez guitars are typically made of Canadian cedar, often reinforced with two ebony strips on the underside of the fingerboard to increase rigidity and eliminate movement caused by wood aging.

Each Rodríguez guitar is hand-formed and glued to create precise balances. From the delicate sanding — even inside the body — that ensures purity of tone, to the beautifully unique rosette inlays around the soundhole and on the back of the neck, each guitar is a credit to its luthier and are worthy of being handed down from one generation to another
