Here’s an unusual rarity – a thirteen course, Michael Schreiner Swan Neck Baroque Theorbo Lute based on a 1730 design and built during 1996 in Toronto. The Schreiner Swan Neck Baroque Theorbo Lute perhaps presages the harp guitars that appeared in the early part of the 20th century. It combines the melodic and chordal capabilities of the Lute (or guitar) with a set of long, unfretted strings tuned to progressively lower pitches.
