I saw your pics, which drew my attention to you, I hope to make something from that period too but I'm gearing up to do some other projects first so it wont be till late next year before I look at anything else

Hello, Peter,

thank you very much for accepting my request!  I feel honored to have the opportunity to own your marvellous renaissance guitar.  I know that a good instrument doesn't only sound good, but also teaches you how to play the instrument properly.  There is no doubt that your guitar is of that kind.  The absense of scalloped sides doesn't matter at all!

Best wishes,

Ah but you had an unfair advantage, you knew who the subject in the photo was.


Anyways, thanks for taking the time to reply Peter, it's good to have the one that knows clear things up.  I at first thought it was a cittern but decided against it because of the numbers of strings. Now I know ro look for other things as well.
