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 17 inch scale, and features six strings. The first (A) 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 alternating staves of Sheesham and Lacewood. The neck and pegbox are solid Sheesham and features a bone nut with a width of 37mm (1 1/2 inch). An end-pin strap button is standard.
