Built in the style of Vvendelio Venere

This lute was designed specifically as an eight course instrument and this is reflected both in the fullness of the elliptical form, and the slightly greater width of the body. The back has thirteen ribs of figured maple or heartwood yew - usually built with decorative filets. The neck and pegbox can made from solid plum, pear, beech, or 9 as in the accompanying photographs) veneered in ebony.

From £4800
