Alexandre Voboam 1676 baroque guitar – an excellent replica – fine and original sound!
The Voboam family of luthiers were active in Paris from 1640 until 1740. They were the leading makers of guitars at that time and produced guitars of the highest level.
A wonderful and very well done replica by Francisco Zarco (Spain).

This guitar is a very nice copy, because the builder has really thought about how to make baroque guitars available for the modern guitarrist. This guitar can be tuned as a normal guitar or in baroque tuning. The professional construction give this guitar a unique sound.
The sound is really surprising – transparent and light. Very clear and absolutely charming. The guitar also has good sustain and captivates with fine and sweet tones. The spruce top gives a nice touch to the sound.
It is an absolute pleasure to play this fine instrument and let it take you to faraway places and times gone by.
