eliades ochoa

Eliades Ochoa is a guitarist, singer and composer. He is considered a master of strings in the international music scene.

Between the years 1968 and 1970, Ochoa sought to create a unique sound out of his guitar. He grasped a different harmony when he adjusted two strings and two keys in a normal guitar.

His present-day guitar, manufactured in 2013 by the laud-guitar maker Jorge Coulin, is an electric guitar with strings. It follows the model of a regular acoustic guitar combined with a tres guitar. Therefore, he has created an original sound that distinguishes his musical career both in Cuba and abroad.

“To build this guitar, (…) made to the exact measure and inspiration of a peculiar and extraordinary artist, has been a great honour”.

Jorge Coulin

“I make two holes in the bridge which allow me to use two double notes. These notes are E and B brought to an octave. I change the sixth C harmony by replacing it with a less calibre string. That one is tuned in eighth C”,
