Guitars Vihuela

An historic and uniquely designed Mexican five-string guitar, our Vihuela offers solid hardwoods throughout, with a vaulted back for superior projection and tonal qualities. The unique neck design utilizes tied on gut frets, the lower half of the neck fretted, the upper half fretless. Adorned with extensive sound hole and binding inlay, with geared machine tuners. A very loud rhythm instrument of Mariachi music, the Vihuela is normally played with fingers strumming open chords on the fretted half of the neck.
