This guiro was made by Latin Percussion Inc. in Garfield, New Jersey, in 1999. It is a Super Guiro model, made of brown plastic, with rubber-lined holes, and a plastic scraper.
As indicated in an LP brochure from the period, “The LP Super Guiro was designed to eliminate the durability issues inherent with the natural version of this instrument. It is precision-molded from high-strength plastic and is designed to have the shape, feel, and sound quality of the natural gourd version. Special attention has been paid to the location of the rubber-lined finger holes to provide maximum comfort and control. It comes with two scrapers, a plastic model for bright loud sound and a wood model for warm dry sound.
