Thanks so much for all your help Monica. I will put up any recordings I make (when I learn how to play the thing!) Also will eventually get my thesis on the web - it has been left ion an extended digit for a long time.

Thanks for this.  I think you are quite right - the instrument is not drawn strictly to scale.  I tried to convince my opponent that these things are not photographs and you can't take them at face value but he wasn't having it.   I hope you will make a recording of some of the pieces.   It would be nice to hear the instrument.   Maurizio Scavone has also had one made but his has a longer neck extension.  Regards Monica

Single 1st course e; double unison 2nd b; double unison 3rd g; octave 4th d; octave 5th a; descending diapasons single-strung: g, f, e, d, c, b, a. I wanted the bass compass so we decided on low diapasons. I understand the scale of the viol in the Granata illustration is also compressed. We felt perhaps the guitar extension may not have been completely faithfully reproduced

This is it is it.   How is it strung?  Monica
