Mactan is famous for guitar-making, and this factory in Abuno, a short ride from the Maribago resort area, is the best place to observe how they are made – and buy them if you wish. Prices range from the P2500 decoration 'cheapie' to more than P70,000 for 'export quality'. The most expensive model is made from exquisite black ebony imported from Madagascar.

Ukuleles and hand-crafted mandolins are also sold.
