Germán Vazquez Rubio began building guitars as a teenager in 1968, the very same year that The Music Emporium first opened its doors. His instruments have been a fixture here since the early 2000s. We are proud to represent this internationally recognized, award-winning luthier and TME house-fave classical builder.

Models We Love


With a thin lacquer finish that feels more like French polish, the Estudio is a lightweight, dynamic guitar, quick in its response with a robust depth of tone. Dark wood binding and a multicolored rosette with matching purflings complete the very tasteful aesthetic.


Featuring a French polished, shellac finish over a German spruce top and Indian Rosewood back and sides, the Hauser balances lightweight, quick attack with dynamic power and alluring tonal complexity. A deeply expressive, concert-level instrument and house favorite model from a modern master luthier.


With a voice at once mature and lively, this instrument balances lightweight, quick attack with dynamic power and rich tonal complexity. If you like the warm, open, resonant voice of a cedar guitar, you are in for a treat.
