Today I will give a lecture for the Dutch Lute Society about the oldest surviving guitar from the Netherlands.
Made in 1760 in Amsterdam by Gosewyn Spyker. This guitar was preserved in the collection of Duivenvoorde Castle, where it was discovered by musicologist and player Jelma van Amersfoort.
She asked me to make a reconstruction of the guitar and its case.
I also made a set of plans for this guitar, so it can be made by other builders as well.
Get your set of plans here or have a look at my other plans in the Payhip store…
