A little bit late, but my 5 cents worth is that the early-music environment is much more complex than your normal classical guitar. Frankly the instrument is only a small part of the equation.
You will need to relearn your right-hand technique including the (almost) complete loss of fingernails because you use figueta extranjera on baroque guitar. You will need an adventurous and inquisitive spirit because the music is hard to source , you will need to read from tablature, sometimes facscimiles, decipher the fancy baroque guitar notations and ornaments, figure out string tensions, find gut string sources, (or nylgut) understand meantone temperaments, learn to tie fret guts....
In the end you will have to decide if all these efforts are worth it. So cradling the physical instrument is just the tip of the iceberg.
