"Hi Nick, Hope all is well. I was wondering if you could send me a few details of your Panormo guitar so I can add it in to my research? Would a photo of the label be possible? Thanks Ian"

Welcome, Ian. I'm playing one of your reconstructions just now - Ian Grant's Harp-Lute. He gave me it for a loan. See the Videos page on this site. I don't know what condition it was in before you got it, but it seems beautifully set up, and sounds delightful.
