Spanish Baroque Guitar


Daniel Larson is pleased to offer a five course baroque guitar to the musician who needs a well-made, reliable instrument with an excellent tone. This style of instrument has been chosen because it is comfortable and easy to play, with a very full tone. It is made to an original design after a study of the iconography of Spain and Italy of the 17th century.

This instrument is an exceptional value for beginners and experienced players. The flat back lowers the cost of production while maintaining a full, rich tone that is suitable for solo or continuo playing.   It is made to be tuned A d g b e' like the modern guitar.  Ten pegs are put into the head so the instrument can be strung with single or double courses.
