A slightly scaled down version of the magnificent tenor lute in Vienna labelled β€œIn Padua  Vvendelio Venere de Leonardo Tieffenbrucker 1582” (Vienna Kunsthistorisches Museum C.36). This size and string length was probably typical of many mean lutes of the period. The back has fifteen ribs and  can be built  with either yew or maple ribs . It is also available in a seven course version.
