      Comments about Paracho Elite Guitars Havana Cuban 6 String Tres:

      I've been playing guitar & such for 20+ years and grew up in Miami, but am no expert on Cuban style folk stringed instruments. So weigh accordingly.

      This instrument is lovely. The top is a single piece of grainy cedar. The back and sides claim to be cedar, but I'm almost certain that they are mahogany. The bracings and such are made from all types of scrap wood, but the build is rock solid.
      No truss rod, but the neck is straight.
      The tuners have a lot of play, but maintain pitch quite well after a simple tightening.
      The action is pretty high and will require some nut and bridge sanding to make it playable, but I've never seen a guitar under 1grand where that wasn't the case. Of course, this makes the intonation really bad near the nut. Unfortunately, mine arrived set up with only 1 octave course (Gg, cc, ee; rather than Gg, cc, Ee as advertised). I've ordered some proper Labella Tres strings and will shave and reslot the nut and bridge when they arrive.
      The frets are tiny, and don't come anywhere near the edge of the fingerboard; so no sharp edges, but don't even consider bending outward.
      I find the distance between courses to be enormous. But the only reference I have is online pics of other instruments.
      If you want a gig-ready instrument straight from the box, this isn't it. But if you don't mind spending time/money on a proper set-up, this thing looks and sounds great.
