"Of course if i had a four course, id probably use that for decidedly renaissance rep"

"Fair enough. I feel a bit better using my 5 course guitar to accompany 16th century rep knowing that the Diaz guitar exists :) So, would you hazard a guess at the earliest 5 course guitar?"

"There are apparently two surviving 4-course guitars but the date from the 1640s. They were mad Giovanni Smit. One of them is illustrated in James Tyler's book The guitar and its music p.82. "
