DelVecchio Dinamico and its original repertoire?

Post by RJVB » Mon May 27, 2019 1:58 pm

DelVecchio is a Brazilian guitar making company that got somewhat of an international reputation for its Dinamico line of beautiful but rather inconsistent resonator guitars which, if I'm not mistaken, were designed for use with nylon strings (or possibly even gut).

That raises a question I don't think I've ever seen addressed: what's the original repertoire it was designed or used for? Any chance that this includes "modern classical" repertoire (or otherwise assimilated to classical music, in the sense tangos and milongas tend to be)?
Gretsch G9240 "Alligator" wood-body resonator converted to non-metal strings (China, 2018?)
Bolink baroque violin (Hilversum, 1982)
Formerly: Brian Cohen baroque violin (London, 1985), Nadegini modern violin (Paris, 1924)
