Cinco de Mayo. Mariachi. You. Big Time.

A Handmade Mariachi Guitar: Necessary

Meet Tomas Delgado. He’s just your average third-generation guitar luthier making mariachi guitars like his granddad taught him. In other words: the perfect thing to help you bring out your inner Antonio Banderas in Desperado. And in other other words: actually... no, that pretty much covers it.
