US $.2000 Mel Wong 8-Course Renaissance Lute 2015, Wash. DC area, USA

Post by Charles Mokotoff » Fri Sep 08, 2017 11:06 am

Swiss Pine Top
Figured Maple bowl
Planetary tuners (gears inside the pegs)
Neck is beech with ebony inlays
620mm Scale Length
Metal frets
Excellent condition

This is the perfect compromise for a guitarist wanting to play lute. No frets to tie and geared pegs. Mel is a wonderful luthier with an impeccable reputation. This instrument was built to my specs and has served me wonderfully in duo, solo and voice accompaniment. I am just wanting to devote my time to only guitar these days.

You can hear it in a duet here:

Is the lute still for sale, and does it come with a Kingham case?

Yes, still for sale.
No, its a hard shell case, but not a Kingham.

Amazing value. Partly why I never became a lute maker!
