Francisco Rodriguez is the luthier behind FranFret Guitars (www.franfret.net). He was already an exhibitor at Guitares au Beffroi guitar show in France this year but it's at the 2015 Holy Grail Guitar Show in Berlin, Germany that The Guitar Channel took the opportunity to interview him.
Francisco Rodriguez interview from FranFret Guitars
It was still early on that Saturday morning when we did the interview so neither Francisco or I are smiling yet. We probably both needed another coffee!

Here are some of the creations Francisco brought to Berlin for his table.
My take on Francisco's guitars
I did not get the chance to plug in the guitars but after playing a couple of them acoustically I can vouch that we are here in the high-quality realm. Nothing very revolutionary in the instruments but some very well built instruments with what appeared to me a very sensible pricing.
I have to admit the Axe model (the one Francisco holds in the interview) really stroke a chord in me with his sexy curves and gorgeous table.
Plus, Francisco is a super nice guy. We had a couple of good laughs during the show.
