- String length 59.2 cm
- 8 ½ frets spaces
- Model A
The wide bodied outline of this design is based on a lute depicted in an early 16th century Venetian Altarpiece.I originally introduced this six course model in 1980. It is based on an outline found in Marziale'sCremona Altarpieceof 1507 (National Gallery, London); the cross sections of the back and the deep capping strip, are taken from the Warwick Frei. I prefer to build the eleven rib back from figured maple or ash without any filets, with a neck and pegbox made from plum, Swiss pear, or maple.
