Paracho Elite Vihuela
The Vihuela is a 5 string instrument, that includes a vaulted back or belly, for added resonance. The instrument is tuned a-d-g-b-e. The Vihuela gives the Mariachi ensemble its unique sound. Its role is normally for rhythm and chordal accompaniment. Recent recordings have made more clever use of the Vihuela's capabilities. This model features a decoratively bound body, geared machine heads, solid top, and a decorative soundhole rosette. The top is made of Tacote, Back and Sides: Cedar, Fingerboard: Granadillo. Nylon gig bag is included.
