Viola Braguesa (Braguesa Guitar)

The Braguesa is one of the several portuguese regional guitars that continue to resist evolution while it maintains the original structure almost unchanged.

It is almost always present in toccatas in the north of Portugal and, although it is mainly used to play folk music, we have noticed a growing interest in using this instrument to play classical music and to play new sonorities.

In its different configurations of construction, these are the most popular:

Top: Linden, Spruce

Sidesand back:  Walnut, Rosewood

Neck:  Mahogany

Fretboard: Wenge, Rosewood, Ebony
