Hello Jelma,
Thanks for asking! That is my 4-course Renaissance guitar built 2 years ago by Lucio Nunez in San Antonio, Texas (http://www.lucionunezguitars.com/). I named it "El Alamito", since the peg head top has the "Alamo" silhouette so ubiquitous in that region. String length is 54 cm., and Olav Chris Henriksen (Boston Catlines) designed a nice set of strings for it as an "A" instrument. I have it tuned to A=415, which gives it a nice combination of tone and feel.
When arriving at specs for the instrument, I wanted to get away from the "plinky" quality of so many Renaissance guitars, so I had Lucio build the depth to 7 cm. This extra air gives the instrument some extra fullness and considerable projection!

Regards, Michael

Very nice indeed! Thanks for uploading it. There is something about those repeated chords that just pulls you in.

I went to your website and followed some links. Unfortunately I don't speak Dutch, but I did see that you also play theorbo and baroque guitar and have done many concerts. I hope to hear more of your files in the future.

Hi Jelma, and welcome to the site. Have you made any soundfiles? I love 19th-C guitars with gut strings. I used to have a modern copy of a Panormo which I strung in gut. My student has it now, but I wish I still had it. There are too many guitars and not enough time.
