Based on an instrument by Magno Tieffenbrucker in the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna (C.45)

Although the Tieffenbrucker was converted into an archlute later the 17th century, the instrument may have been built originally as an eight course lute with a single pegbox, and the proportions of the body make it an ideal model on which to base nine and ten course lutes as it combines a comfortable string length with a neck that carries at least nine tied frets. I have two moulds for this model: one with 19 ribs (shown here), and another with 31 ribs as on the original.

Price for the the multi rib version - £6000

From £5400
