- Traditional Portugese/Brazillian rhythm instrument
- Forefather of the ukulele
- Metal strings tuned DGBD (open G)
The Braguinha is a traditional Portugese instrument originating from the Madeira Islands in the 18th Century. The instrument was taken to Hawaii in 1879 which then evolved into the ukulele.
This model is tuned to the traditional Brazillian DGBD (open G) tuning which will be familiar to banjo players and many guitarists. The Braguinha can also be retuned to DGBE in order to play ukulele chord shapes.
Unlike the ukulele the Braguinha has metal strings rather than nylon which help to provide its distinctive chiming sound - gauges used here are .009, .011, .014, and .20W.
- Solid spruce top
- Solid sapele body
- Tuned DGBD
