Odessa Thin Body 10-String Quinto
From Paracho Elite in Mexico
The Odessa is a thin body quinto featuring a thin 3-1/8 inch body with a satin matte finished cedar top. The back and side are poplar, and it has a rosewood fingerboard and a carved rosewood bridge. The cutaway body is beautifully bound in two-toned binding to dress it up.The quinto has five courses of double strings, without the double course of low E strings found on a bajo sexto. The tuning is A-D-G-C-F, from lowest to highest string courses. This gives the quinto the brighter voice that's hard to mistake in Mexican music.
The artisans at Paracho Elite have been making fine Mexican instruments for generations, and their skill and craftsmanship is apparent in the appearance, workmanship, fit and finish, and the sound of this handsome quinto.
