The Chambure vihuela, recently re-discovered, has added an important resource to the knowledge of vihuela design. The barring and overall layout, length of the neck, bridge position and the vaulted back are notable details. The curves of the body are easily de-constructed with a straightedge and compass. Note basic nature of the barring, only two main bars, which are slightly skewed. This seeming simplicity produces an instrument with a wealth of overtones and allows the top to be thicker.
