A network for historic guitars and vihuelas
Today one of my students turned up with a new 5c guitar by Alexander Batov. I know I've championed his work before, but he has now entered a new level, and I honestly don't know any better luthier for guitars and vihuelas. I believe he is also making lutes as well. I'm sure he will soon be regarded as one of the finest lute makers in the world.
Here is the very instrument. The visuals are amazing, but I have to tell you that the sound is REALLY AMAZING. And, no, I am not on commission. If only!
We are lucky to have him commenting here when he has the time.
wow, just astounding,
I love also his Viola da Mano...
He is making lutes too ??? I don't see any on his website.
