Sebastian Saldarriagawho lives in La Serena, Chile, has built many different types of instruments over guiitarron years. It took a lot more time than I expected to recieve it, but it is a very nice quality instrument.
The only thing that I will have to change on it are the tuning machines. He has a blog located at: Purchasing this instrument was such an experience!
Some parts fascinating, some parts frustrating. Since this was my first international purchase through the mail, it was quite a learning experience. It all began after I worked on a cigar-box guitar with my step-father during Thanksgiving break in It appears that looking at all the different tuning options sparked my interest enough to do deep research into other instruments.
Also, a catalyst for the benign obsession was probably picking up a mandolin see the mandolin story for detailsand my parents giving a ukulele to my daughter as chileon gift.
After some digging, I stumbled across a link that contained tunings from many different ethnic instruments. I did some internet searches for a luthier to build one, but I could only find one available from a company called Mesko, which is located in Santiago, Chile.
After a couple of phone calls to the store, I realized that I mistakenly assumed that they would be able to communicate to me via English.
Frustrated, I still looked for another luthier.
Many months later, I found one that would agree to build one for the same price that the other company quoted on their site. Due to the luthier asking for payment at the same time he was moving to another country, it was far from a smooth transaction.
Thankfully, the money was eventually picked up by him, and everything worked out. I only know of one person in the United States that has actually learned how to properly play the instrument in Chile.
She presently does not live too far away from me, so I might get the courage to ask her for lessons someday.
See the dissertation listed in the sources for details on optional tunings. Traditionally, both steel and nylon strings can be used. Also, I have seen all steel strings used though as well.
