Bologna-style 6-course lute




A six-course lute, in the elongated Bologna style, built with a shell made in 1982 by Robin Linklater, UK. The details of the soundboard, neck and pegbox were based on Hans Holbein's painting "The Ambassadors". This lute is now available for hire at the equivalent of the Lute Society in Brazil. Robin Linklater kindly donated tools, seasoned wood and templates upon retirement. This instrument is half his, and we expect it to help students without the means to own an instrument.
