A beautiful nylon string guitar with a slightly shorter scale for playing ease.
The Paracho Elite Gonzales 6 String Requinto has dense mahogany for the back and sides, a solid cedar top and the heft and feel of a pro instrument. Other features include a nice soundhole rosette and binding treatments.
The requinto guitar is a six-string nylon guitar with a scale length of 530 to 540mm, this is about 18% smaller than a standard guitar scale (650 to 655mm). Many requintos have cutaways. Requintos made in Mexico typically have a deeper body than a standard guitar (110mm as opposed to 105mm). In Mexico, the requinto is typically used in a "trio romantico", which includes the use of two other guitars along with the requinto.
Paracho Elite Guitars are made in the legendary mountain village of Paracho-high in the Sierra Madre Mountains of Mexico. Paracho artisans have been perfecting their craft for over 200 years. Many of the luthiers that work at the Paracho Elite shop are fourth and fifth generation musical instrument makers.

Comments about Paracho Elite Guitars Gonzales 6 String Requinto:
I'm very pleased with the tone and quality of my Paracho requinto. I did have to do a little set up, however that's to be expected from an instrument in this price range. The tone produced by the solid Cedar top is very warm and projects well for such a small body. I have used it in the studio, and also find myself picking it up often just to practice around the house due to it's portability.
