5 of 5 What a great purchase! October 17, 2017
Reviewer: Amateur Lutenist from New York, United States  
I recently became seriously interested in playing the lute. Naturally, I began hunting around on the Internet for information and prices. After considering (and saving) for some time, I finally decided to buy this particular lute. I was a little bit nervous since I've never ordered from this company before, but I should not have been! I received the lute less than a week later in perfect condition. Since then, I have spent much time learning and enriching myself. It is a beautifully made instrument and I love how it sounds. Thank you Handcrafted World Instruments for a wonderful instrument and wonderful service!
