How does a Cebu guitar sound like?

Apart from fresh and dried mangoes, otap and danggit, one of Cebu’s other major product is its guitars. Filipinos know that when you want the best quality local-made guitars for the best value prices, you go to Cebu.

Being avid travel photographers, going to a Cebu guitar factory or store is in the itinerary. We hopped on a cab and told the driver to take us to Mactan island, where most of the guitar shops are located in Cebu. We ended up at Guitar Master, and was met by Ronie, a passionate man who believes in making good quality guitars without the expensive price tag. The conversation turned technical, so I resorted to playing around with the Canon Ixus’ video feature and patched together this little piece.

I’m not a music expert, but that guitar sounded pretty nice.

      I agree with you sir! Just bought guitar for my 13 year old son Ronie was kind enough to suggest what guitar fits my son as a beginner. He gave a lot of perks and price is very affordable for a good quality guitar. My son loved his blue guitar master! Highly recommended

    Sayaka here from Japan.I’m so amazed since I bought a ukulele from Guitar Master.
    It was my first time to see and hold a ukulele and I ‘m so happy to get a chance of having one. The shop owner was very friendly and accommodating. I’m grateful because he gave me a discount.
