Custom Vihuela Mariachi Guitars

The first guitar Tomas Delgado, 3rd generation guitar luthier, built was a Vihuela. As a matter of fact, Tomas is responsible for introducing the Vihuela and Guitarron into the Candelas guitar product line. He correctly sensed demand for both guitars back in the early 1990's and his customers have rewarded his insight.

Candelas Vihuela guitars are handcrafted with solid Cedar wood sides and backs. The top of the guitar is made from Tacote wood, the most traditional wood used in the construction of Vihuelas and Guitarrones. Combined, these quality woods produce a most incredible Vihuela sound.

Since guitar building is in Tomas' blood, he understands the needs of each musician that plays his guitars. For instance, the bridge of the Traditional Standard Vihuela is uniquely designed to significantly reduce degradation (wear and tear). In addition, the pickguard is designed to last a minimum of 15 years.

Machine heads are available as are wooden pegs.

Each Vihuela comes with a lifetime warranty.

Custom Vihuela Especial Guitar

Tomas Delgado's first professional contribution to Candelas was the introduction of the Vihuela. Through the years, Candelas has been known not only for the sound quality of their guitars but also for their artistic and aesthetic beauty. The Vihuela Especial Guitar is a perfect example of Tomas' brilliance as a luthier.

In the center of the Tacote wood top is Candelas' Abalone Star Rosette, the true trademark of the Vihuela Especial.

Like the Standard Vihuela, Candelas Vihuela Especial guitars are handmade with solid Cedar wood sides and backs. As mentioned, the tops are made from Tacote wood, a traditional wood that experienced luthiers use in the construction of Vihuelas and Guitarrones. The sounds produced by the Candelas Vihuela is superior and astounding.

Each Vihuela Especial is given a unique bridge designed to reduce wear and tear and a pickguard designed to last a minimum of 15 years.
