From the 1604 edition of Juan de Horozco y Covarrubias, Emblemas morales. originally issued in 1589 (see 16-317). A new woodcut woodcut was used in this edition. This illustration is at the opening of Emblema 31, on fol. 61. Other details are in the 16-317 entry
Very typical guitar or vihuela shape and proportions: incurved waists (less than 1589 edition), larger lower bout, bridge low on the soundboard, rosette, above the waist, flat back, with four strings depicted. The pegbox on this version of the print is difficult to identify.
