Weiss on a Liuto-forte

This is a lute with individual guitar strings. Interesting that the nut is only used for eight strings, even though it has slots for 11. It must be so it will look nice. This can be seen easily on the Allemande video at 1:45. Here are the Fantasia and Allemande from Dresden Sonata No. 11
