Sounds like a fun project.  It would be great to see a
picture of it, though I guess you can't post it to the
list (maybe Greg could put it on the minstrel web

I did something similar a few years ago, using a
child-size classical guitar.  I just did four double
courses, more of a Renaissance guitar than baroque. 
And I used friction pegs.  It worked pretty well,
though I'm currently in the process of redoing the
bridge to make it more authentic (no saddle).
