Beautifully crafted, simple beginner or travel cavaquinho by APC
Almost half a century of luthier tradition have gone into this beautiful, very precisely crafted cavaquinho.

Soft, warm, local woods and the luthier's experience of a family business have created a series of instruments that are quite impressive.
If you are looking for an inexpensive beginner model, like a simple design or want an affordable travel option without amplification which is of plenty good quality that you will still be happy to play it in many years to come, you have found the right one.
Simple design, good mechanics, matt finish and brilliant sound.
Customer reviews for "Cavaquinho Basic acustico"(4)
guitariste confirmé mais débutant au cavaquinho,j'ai été très agréablement surpris:le son est très bon (je trouve) les notes sont justes,il tient très bien l'accordage,très agréable à jouer.
It's my first cavaquinho but it's doing me great since i keep learning songs. Sounds nice to me. If i get something more fancy later, the first will be good for parks and parties
Excellent cavaquinho simple mais joli et bien finis.
J'ai juste réglé la justesse du sillet de chevalet et mis un tirant de cordes plus gros et le son est très bon.
Rapport qualité prix imbatable.
Handmade quality cavaquinhos from Portugal, beautifully finished and made in Europe
Born in 1951, António Pinto Carvalho, founder of APC Instrumentos Musicais, opened his company in 1976 with the aim of producing high quality stringed instruments.
Already at the tender age of 10, António Pinto Carvalho began to learn the art he still devotes himself to today. Guided and inspired by his grandfather, he built the first cavaquinhos and guitars. Today he is one of the most famous guitar makers in Portugal, the company is still in the hands of his family.
With around 50 employees, APC is the largest national company in this field and produces and sells a wide range of instruments worldwide. Despite its traditional background, the company invests in the latest technology and strives for the greatest possible accuracy and precision in the manufacturing of string instruments. However, the irreplaceable work of a luthier remains important, turning every instrument into a unique piece and defining its beauty and sound. The symbiosis between 19th century craftsmanship and today's technology is the key to the quality and authenticity of every APC instrument.
APC Instrumentos Musicais stands for Portugal's reputation for string instrument making, a country as rich in chords and sound scapes as the string instruments themselves. Genuine Portuguese culture and tradition.
