The Lute-kulele (TM) by Roosebeck, is one of the sweetest sounding ukuleles in our collection and is ideally suited for classical and fingerstyle music. It's design is based upon the Renaissance Lute which was prevalent in Europe in the 16th and 17th century, This Tenor-sized instrument is based upon a 430 mm (17 inches) scale and features six strings. The second (E) 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 walnut and lacewood (Platanus orientalus). The neck and pegbox are solid walnut and features a cattle-bone nut with a width of 37 mm (1 1/2 inch). An end-pin strap button is standard. SPECIAL NOTE ON STRINGS: There is no warranty on strings.
