OVERVIEW

        Comments about Paracho Elite Guitars Columbian Tiple 12-String Classical Acoustic Guitar:

        Be aware, may need set up (esp. nut & bridge adjustment) to make playable & tiple strings are not easy to get in UK - some string companies offer them but will not export to Europe so you can pay a premium or make up your own string sets if you can get the very fine gauges. The supplied strings on the tiple were wrong gauges (many the same, over heavy gauge) so would need much lower or different tuning. From researching, tuning is - modern D4 D3 D4, G4 G3 G4, B4 B3 B4, E4 E4 E4 (guitar/uke) or traditional C4 C3 C4, E4 E3 E4, A4 A3 A4, D4 D4 D4 (lute fingering) strings 009P – 009P – 009P, 007P – 018W – 007P, 008P – 020W – 008P, 010P – 025W – 010P. I tune CFAD with wide flat capo for max versatility & to keep the tension down. Construction is rough but functional internally, finish thick but not bad, cedar (or similar) wood is nice & overall seems strong enough for 12 strings - there's no truss rod. Soundboard solid & thick. Back and sides may be each one piece with lines drawn down the middle & may be solid or laminated - it's hard to tell. Brass frets & tuners OK. Tone is fine, sound is full with so many strings but not especially loud due to heavy but strong construction. Nice to have a hand made instrument with a difference - interesting alternative to ukulele or entree to S. American music.
