This eight course lute has a natural finish and is made for a right handed player.  You can easily attach your own shoulder strap for playing to the end peg.

The body has sheesham staves accented white pinstripes in between.  The neck, nut, end peg and tuning pegs are also made out of sheesham.  The mustached bridge is sheesham, a top section of lacewood adds elegance and strength.  The sound board is made out of Canadian spruce and the single sound hole has an intricate laser cut design.

There are 4 nylon wound strings and 11 rectified nylon strings in seven courses of two strings and one course of a single string.
