I have a great guiro from Lawton (shekeres, also..):

They are sold in Guitar Centers but I'd recommend getting it direct as there is "talk" thay the hand picked ones are better than the ones at GC. :;):

Alafia Abures!
I hope that you are all well and abundantly blessed!

I actually found and currently use an excellent replica of a puerto rican quiro (plena/bomba) with the scraper at the following site:

The guiro is made of durable resin something or rather and has a very good sound to it.

Many blessings!

I RECENTLY RECEIVED A VIDEO OF A GUIRO COMPETITION IN BORINKEN, I'M SURE THAT MY PANITA COULD GIVE ME A QUOTE ON A NICE JIBARO STYLE GUIRO. MESSAGE ME IF INTERESTED.

ONILE, ONCE AGAIN IT'S ALWAYS UNA CURA TO READ YOUR POSTS HERMANO, ALAFIA CUMAYE!!!

Alafia Abure VinnieL!

I actually don't think it's in the US, I originally got my guiro via ebay and the store was in Puerto Rico aka Borinken! The construction of it makes it very indestructible I'm getting a lot of miles out of mine.

Suave!
Onile!

Hi,

Guys I just got back last week and my family is from Penuelas P.R. el Pueblo de el Guiro. Look @ these pictures these Guiros are made by Frankie Perez Matos I will give him a call and make sure it's O.K. to post the number I'm sure it wont be a problem. If sure I will post the number by the end of the weekend.

Saludos,
