VIHUELA DE MANO
Vihuela de mano in G
I make this instrument based on the iconography of the era, such as that found in the paintings of the Cathedral of Barcelona, or the illustration on Luys Milan’s “El Maestro”, and original preserved vihuelas like the "Chambure", the Vihuela of Quito and the vihuela/guitarra made by Belchior Días in 1581. It is built in selected rosewood, cypress, walnut or maple, with quality european spruce top. Fingerboard can be made in pearwood, boxwood, olive or paoferro with ebony framework.
Renaissance model ebony pegs. 3-level rose of Pearwood and parchment. Historical ebony half-binding in top. Finished wuith oil. I also build a student model. It’s the same design but with simple woods and reduced decoration.
String length: 600 mm.
