If you are looking to own an instrument with a rich culture and history, this is it.

The jarana is a guitar-shaped fretted stringed instrument for strumming that has eight strings. The "segunda" is the medium sized instrument in the "jarana" group of guitars. It measures 30in. This Tlacotalpan-style jarana has four double courses of strings tuned gG-CC-EE-AA.

The body of a jarana is carved from a single piece of Spanish cedar, and it is then hollowed out, with a separate soundboard and fingerboard applied. The tuners are wooden friction pegs. The instrument comes with a canvas gig bag.
