Brazilian made guitars

Hey guys! I was wondering if you guys know some of the best custom shops in the world (IMO), the ones from Brazil!



The guitar above is made by a company named Ledur, which uses Brazilian woods and natural finishes exclusively. They say he wood is a form of ar itself, that it shouldn't be covered by paint. A few months ago we've signed an endorsement deal and I am lucky to own that fine instrument as the first one in collaboration with them.

So I'm gonna post some pics of its building process! Let me know what you guys think.

Re: Brazilian made guitars

It really makes me proud that Brazil is trying hard to become a country known for its great musicians and, now, its great musical instruments, especially guitars. This shows that South America has A LOT to offer to the world, no matter how difficult the situation is!!

The guitar looks really nice! I'd like to see more Brazilian guitars = more pics!

Re: Brazilian made guitars

That is an awesome looking instrument.
But Brazil is blessed with some of the best trees(rainforest) in the world and the woodworking skills go in hand with the beautiful lumber.

Yeah, you're right, sorry I didn't know that guitar. "Lançamento" means "Introducing", it's a one-off model made for João Neto. The first and only one that's been painted I've seen. Thanks!

Nah, it won't last too long.
Our corrupt politicians are destroying and selling it pretty fast.
