When it comes to energy, rhythm and passion, Latin music will almost always come to mind. It's sometimes fast and sometimes gentle, but always emotive. One of the key drivers of that emotion is the emphasis on skilled guitar playing that characterizes all Latin styles. It's no surprise, then, that there are so many types of Latin guitar, including the guitarron, bajo sexto and requinto.

Originally from Southern Mexico, the bajo guitar is today used mostly in north Mexican norteƱo music as well as the blended Tex-Mex styles of south Texas. "Bajo" means "bass," and this type of Latin guitar is as outstanding as you would expect for delivering low-pitch rhythms. There are two varieties of this instrument: the bajo sexto, with six pairs of strings tuned in E-A-D-G-C-F; and the bajo quinto, which drops the E to bring the string count down to five pairs. Paracho Elite Guitars' bajos are the Victoria sexto and the Odessa-P quinto; both of which are acoustic-electric models with their own built-in pickups for connecting them to an amplifier. This allows you to play any size venue, using acoustic sounds for small spaces and plugging in to a speaker stack for big auditoriums. Read More >
