Jaranas

The Jarana is also referred to as the Jarana Jarocha. Its body and top can be expertly comprised of fine woods such as Cedar or Mahogany or the body, neck and headstock of the jarana jarocha can be handcrafted from one piece of wood. The body is long and thin, much thinner than a typical guitar body.

Tomas Delgado hand makes his Jaranas with either Cedar or Mahogany sides and back in addition to Cedar or Spruce tops. Like the Requinto Jarochos, Tomas can expertly craft a Jarana from one hollowed out piece of Cedar. All Jaranas are priced to include a transparent, thin, and durable pickguard that will last 10 years, the longest durable pickguards available today.
