Mandora after Johannes Jauck
760 and 895 mm, 9 courses (1x1, 5x2 + 3x2); based on a very beautiful but little known Bohemian baroque mandora by Johannes Jauck 1746 (Bruxelles, Musée Instrumental No. 0251) The original has 9 courses of 694 and 834 mm and has a body of 11 ribs in figured sycamore with a simple long black neck with a typical Jauck style extended pegbox with cantilevered nut. It has a triple rose and a very specific style of bridge used by Jauck in his other lutes. This is a slightly larger version with a body in rosewood based on Edlinger but it has the same neck, bridge, rose, pegbox and general layout as the original.
