With a beautiful, original design, this striking charango combines the natural colors of congona, pine, and jacaranda wood. This Andean ten-stringed instrument is South America's version of the European mandolin, traditionally crafted from the shell of an armadillo. Peruvian artisan Benito Tito crafts the charango guitar by hand, adorning the back with the image of a spider, inspired by the ancient geoglyphs at Nazca. Strung with nylon and metal strings, the charango arrives with a colorful acrylic case for storage.
