10 Course Lute

11. 67.5cm, 10 courses; after Christofolo Cocho c.1650 (Copenhagen 96A) The original has 11 ivory ribs with triple lines between and an extremely elaborate inlay on neck and pegbox. This is possibly the only lute originally built as a ten course instrument to have survived mostly unaltered.

For the first version shown below I have reversed the colours by using ebony and holly in place of ivory and ebony, but the design of the inlay is unchanged. The second plain version is made in English yew and ebony

Price and original inlay: £5000
With simpler decoration: £3700
