I have been reading on early romantic period guitars and I have become obsessed with the notion of the baroque sound, the baroque and renaissance music and also the connections to the early period of classical guitar music. I have decided to look for an early romantic guitar and have been looking all over the net with limited success.
I prefer a baroque shaped guitar but I also want a 6 stringed guitar (tuned to the current classical guitars). I know this is twisting the tradition, but my objective is to get the look, feel and sound of the early era while being able to play suitable classical pieces on them.
I came across the Giorgio Sellas Baroque Guitar (6 string replica) by Early Music Direct - http://www.earlymusicdirect.com/guitars ... uitar.html
The guitar has Canadian Spruce sound board, back with mahogany and maple with fillets of ebony. The workmanship on the rosette is very intricate and it looks like a well made instrument, not just an entry level one.
I would be grateful for any comments or feedback on this particular guitar, or generally on baroque style guitars like this. If you have played one or have one for sale, I would be very interested in.
BTW, I have also taken a liking to the Italian Fabricatore guitar, but these are so rare to find.
