    More strings = Baroque guitar

    Ya I guess I'm wanting more like a vihuela, or... maybe a renaissance lute

    Two fine-sounding instruments, Jo, and they look really good too! The cedar top sounds warmer, I would say.

    I bet that cedar one smells nice as well as sounds nice.

    Trust me, you're not alone! My workshop smelled amazing for weeks even after it was finished.
