Paracho Elite Guitars are made in the legendary mountain village of Paracho—high in the Sierra Madre Mountains of Mexico. Paracho artisans have been perfecting their craft for over 200 years.
Many of the luthiers that work at the Paracho Elite shop are fourth and fifth generation musical instrument makers.
These hand crafted, quality guitars are made from some of the finest woods. Each guitar has its own unique styling and beautiful inlay craftsmanship. Most importantly, they produce remarkable sound and are played by recording and performing professionals.
The requinto guitar is a six-string nylon guitar. Requintos made in Mexico typically have a deeper body than a standard guitar (110mm as opposed to 105mm). In Mexico, the requinto is typically used in a “trio romantico”, which includes the use of two other guitars along with the requinto.
