Although I am not new to classical guitar (been playing it since I was a kid for about 28 years now!) I am very new to lutherie! I have been thinking about building instruments for the past 15 years, I have read tons of guitar making books and, finally, I can start for real!

I have always been fascinated by lutes and early music in general, therefore I decided to start with a lute! I bought two excellent courses by Mr David Van Edwards, and I started building my first ever instrument, a 7 course Renaissance lute!

I thought that it would be nice to share my wannabe-luthier progress here with you all, with the aim to inspire other people to start getting their hands dirty with the noble art of lutherie!

I am very excited to start this new adventure, and I hope that a lot of people here will enjoy the journey with me!
