Hi Hans, the similarity with the guitar on the left is amazing!

He's more handsome on the painting than on the drawing

@Hans, yes, that's my new guitar :-D What is your opinion as to the stringing? I suspect this is a 5-course guitar, but single strung - look at the pegs.

@Lars, I'll post another portrait I found, that rather looks like this one. And yes, I have a number of his songs.
