GUITARRA PORTUGUESA (Portuguese Guitar)

 

All my guitars are handmade with high quality materials.

All the guitars are dated, signed and numbered.

 

I use top quality European spruce and red cedar. A wide variety of tonewoods are available for the back and sides, the most known and used are rosewoods, maple, mahogany, ziricote, walnut but others can be used as well, please inquire.

I now also offer guitars made without using any tropical hardwoods or just in some parts, like fretboard, please enquire.

All my Portuguese Guitars are finished with shellac (French polish) but other options are available such as Hybrid finish (shellac top, back & sides and neck lacquer).
