"Hello Renato, this forum is actually for historic guitars and vihuelas, originals or replicas, but not for lute music played on modern guitars. Maybe this would be better if posted on Delcamp? Jelma"

"It is a renaissance vihuela. I do not know for certain, but it may be a Spanish instrument, made by the Vera Brothers in the 1970s. This is based on some paperwork I found. That is all I really know. Thanks for any help you can provide. N."

"Dear Nicholas, can you tell us more about the instrument? Are you referring to a renaissance vihuela or a Mexican one? The difference is quite large.  Jelma"
