Hey, Andrew!  I finally signed up for this group too because I have not one but two prospective vihuela customers.  need to start doing the research.  I'll be ordering some cittern strings from you in a couple of months when i finish this daSalo i'm working on.  haven't had time to surf the cittern site in about a year now!

Thank you very much, Andrew. I have a bit more of material to add to that page (as well as to the others) but I'm really short of time to get it all done. Let me just say that your cittern site is absolutely brilliant in all respects and I always enjoy visiting it from time to time. Keep up the good work!
