Based upon the Renaissance Lute which was prevalent in Europe in the 16th and 17th century, the Lute-kulele is one of the sweetest sounding ukuleles in our collection and is ideally suited for classical and finger-style music. This Tenor-sized instrument is based upon a 430 mm (17 inches) scale and features six strings. The second (E) and third (C) strings are doubled providing a rich full and balanced tone. It is played like any normal 4-string ukulele. It features a European spruce soundboard with the famous Leonardo Knot rosette which was a favorite of many Renaissance lute makers. The back is made in the traditional manner of lute-making and is made of staves of sheesham (Dalbergia sissoo). The neck and pegbox are solid sheesham and features a bone nut with a width of 37mm (1 1/2 inch). This instrument is outfitted with traditional ebony lute pegs. The bridge is also made of sheesham . An end-pin strap button is standard.


This instrument is available separately with an all lacewood back (ULTCL) or a variegated back with alternating staves of sheesham and lacewood (ULTVL).
