In keeping with the character of a lute, the bowl-shaped body is achieved by edge-gluing together staves of uniformly thin hardwoods bent to a specific shape with no heavy internal bracing to retain its form. The bowl is made of two alternating woods: Lacewood (Platanus orientalus) is a light-colored hardwood that has color similar to maple and has distinctive rays that provide what is known as a \"beeswing\" pattern. A member of the sycamore family, its timbre characteristics are similar to maple generally providing a brighter tone than rosewood. The dark-colored wood is sheesham rosewood (Dalbergia sissoo) that affords a warmer mellower tone. The combination of the two offers a blended timbre as well as a desirable look. European spruce is used for the soundboard and, in keeping with the design of 16th-Century lutes, its soundhole is a carved rosette in an attractive geometric pattern which is cut into the soundboard itself and is not inlaid of different material. Most exciting is that the soundboard bracing pattern follows bracing used in world-famous Kohno classical guitars. The mahogany neck has a shape is similar to a classical guitar with a 51mm (2 inch) wide nut of bone. The top of the peg box has a woman\'s head carved on the top. Using standard nylon classical guitar strings, it is tuned like a guitar in E4, B3, G3, D3, A2, E2 tuning. If it is to be used for lute music, the 3rd string may be tuned a semi-tone down to F# to enable lute fingering. The guitar is outfitted with smooth-operating gold tuners with black ebonized tuning key buttons.Accessories Included: Padded gig bagImportant Specifications:Item overall: 41\" L x 7\" H x 12.5\" WBody/Bowl: 20\" L x 7\" H x 12.5\" WBody & Neck: The body is sheesham and varigated lacewood and neck is mahoganyNut: bone; Neck at Nut: 2\" W; Nut: 2\" WNeck at Body Joint: 2.25\" WStrings at the Nut: 1.75\" W Strings at Bridge: 2.25\" WScale Length: 26\"Soundboard: The sound board is spruce and has 1 laser cut rosette sound hole Frets: There are 19 metal fretsTuning Pegs/Levers: There are 6 mechanical geared right angle tuning pegs/levers with a 14:1 ratio.Strings: 6 like a classical guitarTuning: We recommend using the standard for classical guitar tuning: 1 (E4), 2 (B3), 3 (G3), 4 (D3), 5 (A2), 6 (E2).Item Dimension(inch): 41x12.5x7Item Weight(lbs):2.75Country: Pakistan 1654586 844731033605 65.00lbs 0.00 0.00 0.00
