GABRIEL HERNANDEZ JIMENEZ – Cedar and Palo Escrito – 2021



2021, Paracho, Mexico.  Solid cedar soundboard, 5 fan braced, figured palo escrito back and sides, 3 piece back, 650 mm scale, 52 mm nut width, ports on either side of heel, armrest, 12 hole tieblock, 20th fret, fret markers at V and VII, lacquer finish.  Lutherie in Paracho dates back to the 18th century and as the features of this instrument demonstrate, Sr. Hernandez is keeping up with the latest developments.  Considering the amount of sound per dollar, this one will most likely win at its price point.  A legitimate musical instrument.   It has a full resonant tone, and much more volume than would be expected.  Easy on the left hand, and the armrest adds to the comfort.  With the two soundports, the player has a great listening experience.
