comment Is the action of my guitar really high?
Yes, it is too high. Take it to a professional guitar technician at a music store and pay them for a setup.

I have no idea. Why don't you write to them and ask?

comment Replacing Viola and Basso continuo
You are splitting hairs, linguistically, but you are still wrong, in practice. Historically, basso continuo was always played with a harpsichord or organ or lute or theorbo for the continuo, and a bowed string bass instrument or bass reed instrument for the basso. At least one chordal instrument is mandatory for basso continuo; added to that, if available, is a bass monophonic instrument. The keyboard or guitar-family instrument is mandatory for basso continuo; the bass instrument is optional.

comment What are the musical instruments that have the sounding range that has at least all notes on this range A#1-C5?
I am curious: why are you asking for instruments with this specific range? Are you writing some music that requires it?

@luserdroog, I have way too much free time and my answers are often three times as long as they need to be, but I often manage to provide some useful additional background. Thanks for reading!
