Three Guiots and a Panormo.

These guitars were all made in London between 1838 and 1847. They have a great sound!

Left handed Puerto Rican Cuatro

"I think it is better if to play an "aguinaldo cagueño" a "seis" or some other Puerto Rican standard.  That music is actually very interesting,  I recommend listening to Maribel…"

Left handed Puerto Rican Cuatro

"If you are using the usual cuatro steel strings, you would have to be as strong as the Hulk to play Bartolotti on this one.  If you change to nylon it might be a bit too quiet. "

Left handed Puerto Rican Cuatro

I bought this easily convertible left handed cuatro at a local auction recently. It would, perhaps, be useful as a five course practice guitar.

An English guitar circa 1825

I second Mr. Batov, he does superb work. But if for some reason he is unable ask Arthur Robb http://www.art-robb.co.uk/pan.html I've seen a couple of his restored Panormos, very good work.

Nick, contact Alexander Batov (a member here) from his website, www.vihuelademano.com - he has done lots of restoration in the past, but I'm not sure if he still does.

Hello Nick and welcome to the EG&V website. Are you looking for a restorer in the UK or in Europe generally? Congratulations on the lovely guitar by the way :-)
