I have a very unique and quite wonderful German made Lute Guitar for sale. It has been fully restored by well a well known and respected Luthier Bruno B.M. Merks of the Bruunari Guitars Foundation.

I am asking $500 but am willing to discuss offers and/or trades. I'd love to get my hands on a nice bouzouki again...

About this German Lute. A very beautiful good build and nicely decorated German Lute. This instrument has a fine warm sound and gives you the possibility to use your guitar skills to create a different atmosphere. The combination of a spruce flat top and a round maple belly gives this instrument a real lute sound. This Lute Guitar is nicely repaired and is like new. The original tuners have been restored with solid brass rollers and bone buttons. Beautiful decorated bridge with flowers and ebony bridge pins with mother of pearl dots. Look at the lovely carved "rose" rosette. This is an opportunity for somebody who wants to try something different and have a beautiful instrument at the same time. It is, due to the scalloped fret board, an easy playable instrument which sounds mellow and sweet. Good volume and sustain for an instrument this size.

I hope you've contacted the seller by e-mail or PM. It's been 10 days since he logged into the board. And at almost 4 months now, this would be considered an old listing. - Moderator
