Cebu is known as home of the best guitar craftsmen in the Philippines. Not only are the guitars delicately crafted, they are exceptionally durable, affordable, and of great quality.
One of the remarkable guitar-makers in Cebu is the Alegre Guitar Factory. The shop is owned and managed by Fernando M. Alegre. It is by far the most impressive-looking guitar factory in Abuno, Lapu-Lapu City. Its world-class guitars never cease to impress seasoned guitarists and musicians.
The Alegre family is one of the pioneers in the guitar-manufacturing business, which is on its third generation of proprietorship. Alegre’s quality guitars are made of indigenous materials, from the type of wood used to the shell ornaments, which make one unique instrument.
The shop exports their guitars to countries like Canada, Australia, Japan, and the United States. Visitors and prospective buyers, who are interested in the different stages of guitar-making, can take a look at the workshop to witness the craftsmen do the actual guitar-making process.
The Alegre guitars are neatly arranged in a showroom, from standard guitars to other stringed instruments. A separate showroom showcases all of the top-quality guitars.
Prices of Alegre-manufactured guitars and stringed instruments are quite expensive as compared to other guitar-selling shops. But if you want your money’s worth and a guitar that will last for a considerable amount of time, you should definitely consider checking the Alegre Guitar Factory.
