I have started a simple first baroque guitar.

Its cherry I had laying around jointed @ 28mm with black veneer lines. The sides bent surpisingly well ( jointed titebond original - outside joints papered with hot glue )
Since I have two sets of Savarez 520B I am not using right now - I see no reason they would not suffice @ 670 string length ?
Checking Artos string calc - doubling the A and D with octaves, I have pencilled for an octave A - ' Augustine regal B string' - and for the octave D - an 'Augustine classic e' .
The G and B would be doubled with the same 520B's ?
Any thoughts ? - are the tensions on these 520B's over the top - and do the double courses alter things tension wise ?
Yes I know I can buy a custom set of Pyramid for £32 odd - but this is one of my 'cost me nothing' builds !
