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 fingerstyle music. This Tenor-sized instrument is based upon a 430mm (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 from Lacewood. The neck and pegbox are solid Lacewood and features a cattle-bone nut with a width of 37mm (1 1/2 inch). An end-pin strap button is standard. This is a right handed model for our right handed players. Suggested tuning from high to low: A4, E4, E4, C4, C4, G4 (can vary depending on player preference). This ukulele comes with padded Case and Extra String set.
