Profile Information

About me:
I have been building lutes and early guitars for 40 years. During the last 15 years I have concentrated on theorbos, archlutes and baroque guitars. Occasionally I have had time to build a late 18th century or early 19 century guitar; Aubert, Benedid, Lacote and Stauffer. I'm also writing a blog on my building activities; http://schreinerlutesandguitars.blogspot.ca/

Hello Michael, thank you for your invitation as a friend, I can see that you have a very interesting life building lutes and early guitars, I am sure you make beautiful work.
Have you made any Vihuelas? I think you saw that I was asking for info about some mesuraments.
Thanks again and have a wonderful evening.
Have a wonderful evening.

Hi Michael, I just discovered your blog and would also like to thank you for taking the trouble to document your builds. It is really helpful for hobbyists like myself.

Hey Michael, I get them from Rubner in Germany. Ask for "Halsschraube fur Gitarre". I think they are part number 150-000-504.


Rubner also handmakes the Stauffer style six to a side tuners (Staufermechanik) in both Brushed nickel and brass. Rodgers are still the best but these are very good, are delivered in a timely fashion and at a reasonable cost. The photo here is one of their brass sets. I like to believe, in my own little world, that  I was instrumental in getting them to re-issue them a couple years back (In actual fact I think a number of early guitar makers were) so I let everyone know about the tuners so they'll keep them in their cataloque.

Hello Michael, I just wanted to say thank you for your blog!  I am building a lute in evening classes and I have found your blog very interesting.  I am also making a mould at the moment so the most recent post is very well timed!  I look forward to seeing the progress on the Jauck lute.

Hi, Michael. Welcome to the early guitar site. I'm playing Piccinini on your 10-course. I'm steadily working through as many pieces as can be adapted to the instrument. Piccinini sounds very good on the Unverdorben. Thomas

Welcome Michael. It's nice to see a fellow Canadian luthier here. I look forward to your input.
