Description: Lute - Baroque Guitar by Sebastián Nuñez, 2005
There are no pictures available for this lute
This beautiful guitar is based on the famous Quito “vihuela”. The back, sides and pegs are made out of a piece of “jacarandá” (also called Rio Palisander or Brazilian rosewood) from a centuries old cabinet. The instrument has a very clear, loud and yet refined sound ideal for the spanish and italian repertoire as well as for continuo accompaniment. The single parchment rosette as well as the exotic bridge “moustachios” are reconstructions of the original Quito instrument. Ebony fingerboard. String length: 68’5 cm.
The reason for selling it is that I never play it anymore since Im am progressively centering on renaissance lute and vihuela music from the XVI century.
The condition of the instrument is as good as new. No scratches or blemishes.
The instrument is officially valued by the maker at €4650 (including VAT. and case).
