Some photos of one of our renaissance lutes, recently completed.
This particular instrument is a 6 course lute in G (60cm, A=440) in ash, beech with a box fingerboard. The outline of the body is after Hieber Venice c. 1580, in the Musee Instrumental, Brussels (no. 1561).
This lute was commissioned by Alex McCartney, professional lutenist and theorbo player.
Alex reviews his 6 course lute: "Having spent some time with the 6 course lute now, I think it is brilliant."
This lute can be heard on Alex McCartney's CD - Elizabeth's lutes
