Arias Classical and Flamenco Guitars

Arias guitars are hand made by luthiers with 20 to 50 years of building experience. Each guitar is made from start to finish by only one luthier. Our production is very limited, and waiting time for a custom order is usually of about one to three months. Most models can be built with or without cutaway.

Internationally acclaimed classic guitar player Luz Maria Bobadilla now plays in concerts with an Arias guitar.

This is what the Classical Guitar Maestro Sila Godoy, the greatest Paraguayan Classical Guitar composer and interpreter after Agustín Barrios, said about our guitars: "Your guitars are the best made in Paraguay by far, every new one I test is better than the previous ones. I have tested guitars from all the best known local luthiers, and yours have no competition either in sound or construction. These are world class guitars that can compete side by side with guitars made by the best European luthiers. I had never dreamed to have guitars of these quality built in Paraguay".

All our wood is SOLID. We do NOT use laminated wood (plywood). We use the highest grades of Western Red Cedar, Engelmann Spruce, Sitka Spruce, and Italian Fiemme Spruce for Tops; and for Back and Sides, the highest grades of East Indian Rosewood, Pau Ferro (Bolivian Jacaranda), and Brazilian Rosewood.
We can also use other species of wood: For Back and Sides: Spanish Cypress, Madagascar Rosewood, Cocobolo Rosewood, Honduran Rosewood, Koa, Honduran Mahogany, African Mahogany, Ziricote, Bubinga, Macassar Ebony, English Walnut, Bastogne Walnut, Claro Walnut, Malaysian Blackwood, African Blackwood, Black Ebony, Bois D' Rose (Dalbergia maritima), Panama rosewood, African Padauk (Pterocarpus soyauxii), Silver Oak (Grevillea robusta), Granadillo (Platymiscium sp) For Tops: Adirondack Spruce (Picea Rubens), Carpathian Red Spruce, Redwood (Sequoia Sempervirons)

Our Rosettes are hand made, from Russia and Argentina.


Warranty: One year against defects in workmanship or materials.

Returns: Guitars with standard dimensions may be returned for a refund (except fund/bank transfer charges and shipping) within seven days after received by the buyer. Guitars must be returned in the same condition as when shipped from us.

Our guitars are competitively priced due to the lower cost of luthier labour in South America.

We can also build Requintos, Parlor Guitars, Acoustic Guitars, Cavacos (Cavaquinhos) and Ukuleles.

See upgrade options for Back and Sides, and Machine Heads.

Prices are in USD (United States Dollars).

Feedbacks received from Arias guitar owners


"Hi Gustavo,
My guitar arrived 7:15 AM Friday morning. I phoned the delivery agent to arrange for a pickup, we live close to Toronto airport. They told me no delivery until Monday. As good luck would have it, when I was in business we did business with the same company you used. As I told you in a previous email my wife looked after sales and transport. She made a phone call and the package was made available for pickup.

The guitar looked perfect which made me happy. You know about my bad experience with the last guitar I bought from one of your competitors in Paraguay. When I tuned the guitar several times above concert pitch until the stretch was almost gone I was ready to play. All my life I played, for 45 years, with heavy guitars. The guitar I mentioned purchased in January, this was also a very heavy and big guitar. Your instrument was petite and light and so beautiful. When I was happy with the tuning I started playing heavy Spanish pieces with lots of base. Gustavo, I never thought this sweet guitar could produce such a pleasing song with the incredible volume I heard. Doing business all my life I used an old tired saying and it is simple, "it is all a matter of what you know" and you clearly know. Over the years I have been playing, this guitar is amongst the best. You will be receiving an order for another and my last purchase made to my specs, with your advice all the way through.

You have opened my ears,

All the best to you and yours,

John Clifford.

"Hello Gustavo,
The guitar arrived with only a small customs check in Osaka. The shipping crateworked fantastic, more companies should do the same! I have been around guitars all my life, my dad worked for Gibson USA. And more recently, I went with my guitar instructor ( he has released 3 CD's in Japan and has played for 38 years) to Ochanomizu (the guitar capital of Japan) where we were allowed to test more than 30 Luthier made guitars. The minimum price for any one guitar at the exhibition was 10,000 US$. I can say with complete confidence, that your guitar is better than 98% of the guitars offered for more than 10,000US$. There was even one for 30,000$ ... but it didn't have such beautiful tone, sustain, or dynamics as yours. Excellent craftmanship!! Thanks for your help with everything!!
Cheers,
Chris Ledbetter (Japan)"
