About us

We are a group of friends from Mexico who love to play guitar, and we happen to live nearby a little town called Paracho.

Paracho is known here in Mexico as the pueblo of the guitarras, the town of the guitars. For many generations, lots of families in Paracho have devoted their life to the art of making guitars and different types of stringed instruments. The luthiers in Pararcho have managed to communicate their passion and knowledge through generations, and also mantain the traditions and mystique of the little town.

So, we just want to create this space for all the music and guitar lovers. You´ll find different types of guitars, built with different types of woods. Also, you´ll find information about the luthiers in Paracho, about their pieces of art, their techniques and much more about the beautiful landspace of Michoacan.
