"Dear Stephen, if you let us know the scale of the instrument maybe we can be more specific. I assume it has six double courses?"

new vihuela

I've just acquired a vihuela built in 1978 by Yairi Guitar.  It's made of cypress and is beautifully constructed. As a guitar player the vihuela is new to me and my recent efforts to find strings for it have failed.  I've tried Strings by Mail and other common suppliers familiar to me to no avail. Can anyone suggest where I might find strings for it?See More
