Early Guitars and Vihuela

A network for historic guitars and vihuelas

What options are there for obtaining a reasonable quality instrument for a student? In the UK I have onlyseen two options: Paul Hathway £1,100 or EMS Heritage £750. Are there any others and does anyone have any experience of these?

Paul Baker. I play a baroque guitar he built. His prices are a bit higher than what you have listed, but are still very reasonable. Diabolus in musica is his company name, if google doesn't find him under his proper name.


I had another look. his "plain version" was right at 1000 pounds. Mine has the fancier mustaches and upgraded to flame maple for a little more. 

Im very happy with it and Paul is an easy guy to communicate with. I highly recommend him. 


Very interesting, thank you
