Nice renaissance guitar ~1560 – an excellent replica – fine and original sound!
A very fine instrument and a well done (historically genuine) replica. This guitar was made by Miguel Dominguez from Algecircas (Spain). He attaches great importance to building these historical instruments true to the original and with the materials of the time.
