With the mastery of an inlaid Abalone sound hole rosette and striped, double figured binding the Zapata uses all the right materials including sides and back of Indian rosewood.
The requinto guitar is a six-string nylon guitar with a scale length of 530 to 540mm, this is about 18% smaller than a standard guitar scale (650 to 655mm). Many requintos have cutaways. Requintos made in Mexico typically have a deeper body than a standard guitar (110mm as opposed to 105mm). In Mexico, the requinto is typically used in a "trio romantico", which includes the use of two other guitars along with the requinto.
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.

Comments about Paracho Elite Zapata Requinto:
The inlay work on the Zapata is amazing! The rosewood used for the back and sides is stunning as well. I have had mine for a couple of years now, and the tone was very unique and rich out of the box. However, due to the solid top, the tone is actually improving with age! I am very happy with it, and really feel that I was able to find a very unique instrument at a reasonable price.
