14 Course Archlute
67cm & 142cm, 14 courses (6 x 2 + 8 x 1) after Magno Dieffopruchar c.1600 (Vienna No. C 45) 31 ribs.
The original is in shaded yew with ebony strips between. The neck and extension are veneered in ebony with ivory edging, there is a triple rose and an ivory and ebony heart in the soundboard.
I recommend adding a pair of extra pegs to the lower pegbox so that the solo repertoire,which requires 7 x 2 & 7 x 1, can be played on the same instrument. Ten frets on the neck.
This version is in ebony with holly lines between the ribs
