❌SOLD❌ Greek Laouto made in Sparta, 1930s

Popular during the 19th and into the mid-20th century, the Greek Laouto or lute contributed to the evolution of the now popular Greek Bouzouki. Though similar in many ways to the German lute guitar, the Greek instrument is strung with double gut or nylon strings in a variety of tunings similar to Bouzouki tunings. The role of the Laouto was usually as a backup instrument to a violin of bouzouki. The frets are tied on as on a Renaissance Lute. The tops were generally spruce and the back are bowl-back construction consisting of 20 or more ribs similar to a Renaissance lute
