Since 1997 I am a fulltime maker of musical instruments. The lutes and guitars I build are based on historical instruments wich have survived in various museums and private collections. However those instruments of wich no reliable specimen has survived, such as the vihuela or the 6-course lute, are based on iconographical evidence.
