A bit belatedly, I've spotted 'agudo' translated as 'high', I think 'sharp' would be more accurate; especially in UK English.

"Requinto" must be a south-american word , I am a metal guitar player and never heard of it.

"Enquintar" means to adjust the intonation at the bridge

"Quinta" is a "fifth interval"

I also know "plectrum" for "púa"

"Trastero" in Spain is quite a different thing , it means a room for storing old stuff or things not often used ( trastos )

la guitarra flamenca: "blanca" = aros y fondo de ciprés; "negra" = de palosanto.
la tapa de las dos puede ser de pino, o de cedro.

los aros = sides
el fondo = back
la tapa (armónica) = top
