Looking like machines that stepped right out of the Middle Ages, these guitarron tuners are sure evidence of the resilience and skill of craft that can be found around the world, even in a place and a time with almost no resources. Each one of the parts is clearly hand fabricated and fitted. Look closely and you can see all the file marks. Rough as they look, these tuners work well and are very solid.
