5-course guitar for the Scheidler duet

I'm working up the Sonata in D for violin and guitar by Christian Scheidler. Having read that it is for a 5-string guitar, I am planning on playing it on a 5-course copy of the 1680 Voboam. I am keeping the double courses on and I have bourdons on the 4th and 5th courses. I am speculating that it was probably for a guitar with 5 single strings, but I don't know for sure. Does anyone have any information about what kind of guitar Scheidler had in mind for the piece?Regards, Bruce Brogdon.See More
