Hello guys .

Im not looking foward to buy a new guitar, but I was wondering what guitars are made in Mexico... besides the acoustics and electrics from local luthiers(unless they have recognition outside Mexico!)

It doesnt matter if they are horrible or very good guitars, or old and out of production, I just wanna know ehe ..

I know Fender has a plant in Mexico... so there are Mexican Fenders, amps(like the EVH 5150III), maybe some effects?, and maybe Jacksons?.
Google told me that some Taylors are made in Mexico too.

So.... what Mexican guitars do you know?

Well, there is the city of Paracho.
http://www.premierguitar.com/articles/19804-Acoustic-Soundboard--The-Guitar-Mecca-of-Paracho

Its most famous for high-end classical/acoustic goutars, made by people like Abel Garcia Lopez.

Some take a slightly more modern stance, including onboard pickups: http://www.parachoelite.com/

Some Mexican Fenders are great. I have HSS Strat and it sounds awesome with Seymour Duncans in it.

Mexicans only play those huge, big body guitars that look cool when you have on a sombrero.

So, it only makes sense that is the only thing they make there.

What guiars are made in Mexico?


Messkin ones.

There are cheese and bean guiars, cheese and bean and pork guiars, deep-fried cheese and bean and pork guiars, guiar salads -- depends on what kind of guiar you want. They also have Chippy-poodle guiars that are pretty good...

Fernandez and ibanez are not made in mexico, oddly enough.

Oh, Paracho! I remember that before I got interested in guitars a lot of people spoke wonders of them(most of them not being guitarist of any kind...) and when I started playing nobody seemed to talk about them...-

So... Just to add more to the thread.

There is Carlos Carbajal, a luthier who currently lives in DF, Mexico who worked with Leo Fender from 1971 to 1977 on Long Beach, California.
http://youtu.be/FwA-qjuahEE
On the video he says he is working on a Mosrite guitar, old and out of production but widely used by The Ventures.

And recently I heard about Distorted Branch Guitars, custom made on Mexico DF.
https://www.facebook.com/Distortedbranch
They recently were visited by Maricela Juarez of Seymour Duncan, and made a guitar for Tristan Avakian who apparently plays on Brian May's We Will Rock You.

Haha, it look like im just advertising them. D:

I think I have a similar feel about them, most of their guitars do not have conventional shapes.
I once emailed them for information and they told me that they wont replicate conventional famous shapes; they have their own designs and are willing to make one from scratch with you.
