This is a Lucida Guitarrón, by the way, which is apparently the Squier Affinity of guitarrónes. I am quite happy with it; never played a pro-level one but I know they go up sharply in price from here. From what I’ve read the high action and big stiff strings are part of the deal on any of them.

What is really exciting me at the moment is how beefy it sounds when recorded. Once I get smoother at playing this thing it’s going to be a total blast for home recordings and maybe some acoustic jams.

View attachment 928262 I’ve wanted to get my paws on one of these for quite some time, and yesterday I received an early birthday present: a guitarrón Mexicano!

The learning curve seems like it will be steep. High action, no frets, everything in two-note octaves...it’s going to take some mental readjustment from how I approach either guitar or electric bass. If I sound an octave on it in tune right now, it’s a total accident. But it sounds big, boomy, resonant and cool.

Off to the woodshed...
that's great ! are we going to be hearing some romantico or norteno music soon
