Tommy Rodriguez

Readers' Pick

This musician and supplier of custom-made, classical guitars is a one-man operation. Tommy Rodriguez makes around 15 acoustic guitars by hand each year, while “helping out with the local music scene,” he says. Why is demand so high? Because unlike something mass-produced, he says, his guitars will “be with you for the rest of your life.”
