On my one visit over the Texan border to Ojinaga, a new friend arranged for a local trio to serenade us as we walked out of our lunch venue.
Those Guitarrons really sound out -gut strung I believe.

Must be uncomfortable to play.

Just remember the first rule of the Guitarron: only the smallest guy in the Mariachi may play the Guitarron!

Default Here's a GIANT guitar

...but given that they're from Toronto, this one's north of the border.
