The guitarrico APC GUI307 is the recreation of a typical traditional instrument very popular in  Portugal and Spain.

The guitarrico is a typical chordophone from the Iberian Peninsula, very similar to the cavaquinho and the guitar. With the expansion of the Iberian peoples to other places, several versions and variations emerged, particularly in Latin America.

The guitarrico was very popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, but has almost been forgotten. It was very common to be used as an accompaniment for voice and to play less folkloric and more saloon music.

APC decided to recover this instrument in a model full of class. The APC GUI307 is a guitar that follows the traditional manufacturing molds of the Portuguese version.

The body is in solid spruce (fir), and the bottom and sides are in sapele. The top is divided into two contrasting shades, which give it a modern and very bold look.

It has four strings, which can be tuned in B-F#-D-A or A-E-C-G. It is played in a similar way to other chordophones of this type, such as the cavaquinho or the ukulele, but it has a different personality from the first one due to its nylon strings, and from the second one due to its lower tone, thanks to a larger resonance box and the tuning.

It is a sweet sounding and very versatile chordophone to be integrated both in traditional Portuguese music and in new musical languages, to add a different aesthetic element of a traditional nature.

The APC GUI307 guitar is manufactured in Portugal by APC, one of the largest traditional chordophone companies in the country. Founded in 1976 by António Pinto Carvalho, the company has around 45 artisans who build various types of traditional Portuguese and other stringed instruments. All instruments are unique pieces of great artistic and musical quality.
