renaissance guitar plans ?

Hello dear fellow members,Does anyone know where to find plans for a renaissance guitar and/or shed some lights about timber choice, internal bracing, and current dimensions ?Since there's no extant historical instrument, I assume modern luthiers build renaissance guitars as a "lighter" baroque guitar, but I may be wrong...Any inputs  and tips would be the most welcomed.Thanks in advance,GillesSee More
