Sound box: Oregon Spruce PineFingerboard: JacarandaType of wood: JacarandaSound hole: RoundStrings: NylonTuning Pegs: Metallic MaterialBridge: Jacaranda and bone fretsGeneral Features: Tuning: The most common tuning for the requinto is 4 notes up from the prime guitar. This means that the tuning is A D G C E A. The requinto is notated as if it were tuned conventionally, so that the instruction to play the open first string is written as an instruction to play E. When played, a A comes out, 4 notes higher. What this means is that the requinto guitar reads from the same notation as classical (prime) guitar, and is played with the same technique - nothing is different except that the notes come out higher in pitch than the notation suggests. Once the requinto is tuned, the different tuning can be forgotten aboutApprox. Size: Length: 85 cm (33.46")Width: 35 cm (12.20")Height: 9 cm.
