This an eight-course lute for the right-handed player. There are 4 nylon wound strings and 11 rectified nylon strings in seven courses of two strings and a single chaterelle, for the highest sounding string. The bowl is constructed of 25 scalloped staves that offer a dramatic appearance; alternating between the deep black colored ebony and the light cream-colored lacewood with white pinstripes between. The thin, solid spruce, soundboard has a natural finish, and a thin ebony purfling accenting the edge. Internal bracing supports the soundboard and the intricately carved rosette sound-hole. The mustache is lacewood and the top bridge of ebony adds elegance and strength. The neck is lacewood, with a solid ebony fingerboard. There are 8 nylon frets tied to the neck and 4 partial wood frets inlaid to the soundboard. The sharply angled head has 15 ebony pegs and is decorated with leaf-and-vine inlay on the underside. There is an end-peg, to which you can attach your own shoulder strap. INCLUDED with this lute is the -Learning To Play The Lute- book by Frank DeGroodt, and a heavily padded gig bag, with shoulder strap, hand grip and front pocket.
SPECIAL NOTE ON STRINGS: There is no warranty on strings. Manufacturers recommend that you change the strings on your instrument as soon as you receive it. Your instrument has completed a long journey before it ever begins the final leg to your home. During this time the elements affect the strings and may shorten their lifespan. It occasionally happens that a string will fail during that final leg of the journey. Therefore, it is recommended that you purchase a replacement set of strings and consider changing your strings soon after it arrives.
