Regular price $450.00 Sale

The requinto jarocho or guitarra de son is a plucked string instrument, played usually with a special pick made of bullhorn called an "espiga". It is a four- or five-stringed instrument that has originated from Veracruz, Mexico. This 4 string requinto was made by master luthier Miguel Ángel Bravo Hernandez from Tlacotalpan, Veracruz. The body and neck is made out of a single, hollowed out, piece of cedar. It is an exceptional example of the traditional/artisan way of making jaranas and requintos jarochos. You can also request to have Wittner mechanical pegs installed for an additional charge.

NOTE: These are handcrafted instruments and might not be identical to the image shown. Espigas are NO LONGER included.
