"Dear Carlos, Thank you for this.  Yes - I agree with much of what you write and, in particular, about the peculiar and, to my mind, unattractive (truncated/squashed) body shape profile of E.0748 (the Chambure instrument) - but, as you also…"

"Dear martyn, The problem when we talk about the vihuelas and the 4-order guitars is that we do not really know what is representative and what is not. The three historical vihuelas are very different, and in the iconography we find a great variety…"

"Dear Carlos, Thank you for this and your view that the instrument in question may have been built as late as 1600. However the use of much aged wood by the maker working even after this date cannot be ruled out - indeed, your own view suggests…"

"I am afraid I don't know of any work on the age of woods used in the seventeenth century. Unfortunately not a lot of work seems to have been done on actual 17th century guitars at all - it is very difficult to find out about surviving example -…"

"Many thanks for this Monica. It's interesting you mention that in an article Gonzales says that there's some doubt about the authenticity of the instrument.  Others  also raised similar concerns - sometimes also around the…"

"A general query: has this instrument ever been scientifically dated?  By this I mean by objective evidence such as expert dendrochronolgy or similar scientific dating procedures?  I understand that there's very limited provenance…"
