Owning a Cebu-made Alegre guitar
Yesterday, I got the chance to visit the Alegre Guitar Shop at Abuno, Pajac, Lapu-Lapu City. I found out from the travel tour guide that Abuno is famous for guitar making and the skill has been passed on from one generation to the next. Even the famous guitar makers in the country gets the best guitar craftsmen from Abuno.
Prices of the guitar from vary from one thousand seven hundred pesos (P1,700) to twenty-eight thousand pesos (P28,000). (Photos taken using the Palm Treo 680)
I got a folk guitar, made of narra, that cost five thousand five hundred pesos (P5,500) for my Rockista kid and she loved it.
