Here’s a small update.
Right now I’m in the heart of Amsterdam on vacation and on friday I have an appointment with dutch luthier John van Gool.
He’s a builder of classical, flamenco, romantic and early guitars/instruments. I am very much looking forward to meet him, and to try a replica of a ca 1820 model guitar.
I will publish some photos after the visit. In the meanwhile please check out his website.
