This is really a very special instrument. It can be tuned like a normal classical guitar and can so easily be played by everyone. But if wanted, it can also be tuned in original vihuela tuning.
The sound is very nice. It has a transparent, light and sweet sound. It is very clear and absolutely charming. The vihuela also has good sustain and captivates with its fine and sweet tones.
It is an absolute pleasure to play this fine instrument and let it take you to faraway places and times gone by.
