Another interesting instrument came across my bench recently. It is known as a Viola Caipira and is super popular in Brazilian folklore music. It is a descendant of the Portuguese family of violas and has evolved into the instrument you will see in the video below. It came from Brazil and was damaged in shipping. The owner sent it to me for the repair work. I think you will find the repair and the history of the instrument very interesting. This video as well as other repair videos are available for viewing on the videos page of my website.  Click repair on the drop down menu.
If you are interested in learning to build guitars or just want
to see how I build my guitars then schedule a class with me.
If you are in need of a concert quality classical or steel string
guitar then let me know as I would love to build a guitar for you.

Thank you,
