Amateur player of guitar - have had a 1825 reproduction 7-string Lacote since 2001. I borrowed from the luthier a vihuela during the year I was waiting for the guitar to be made. I fell in love with the instrument: it was just right for me and have always regretted buying the guitar. Have really longed for a vihuela either as an addition or as a replacement if necessary. The repertoire of the vihuela and six-course lute and related choral music is my favourite. I have continued to follow the growing interest in the vihuela.

i also fell in love with a Vihuela, an old maiden, left in a vitrine by another men for ten years ;-)) . now it´s my and you are kindly invited to explore, what this cute instrument had learned under a gardener´s rough hands in few months.

Welcome to the group. One amateur to another, I sure know the dilemma -- so many instruments, so little time (and money!). I'm sure your 7-string instrument provides great enjoyment. For my part, I have a mandore (pre-mandolin) and baroque guitar. I want a renaissance guitar, a vihuela, and a theorbo. Nothing much. All this on top of a modern guitar and a ukulele. And a day job to pay the bills.
