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.
These hand crafted, quality guitars are made from some of the finest woods. Each guitar has it's own unique styling and beautiful inlay craftsmanship. Most importantly, they produce remarkable sound and are played by recording and performing professionals.
The Bajo Sexto is a 12 string guitar fused with a bass used in Mexican music, primarily Norteño music of Northeastern Mexico and across the border in South Texas, known as "Tex-Mex", "Conjunto" or "Musica mexicana-tejana". Bajo Sextos are tuned from highest to lowest Bajo Sextos strings: E-A-D-G-C-F.
The Paracho Elite Alvarado Bajo Sexto features beautiful, ornately designed Abalone inlaid rosette and mica top. The design consists of small squares carefully butted together, color matched and polished. The rosette binding and generous side treatments make this a truly unique instrument.
