Sold! Michael Schreiner Renaissance Lute Maple Cherry, 1980

Sold!  Michael Schreiner Renaissance Lute Maple Cherry, 1980

The Schreiner Renaissance lute, with 7 courses, is built using largely traditional patterns and materials – in this case, the top is Spruce, the ribs are alternating Flame Maple and Cherry, with the neck being a light wood wrapped with Cherry, and topped with an Indian Rosewood fingerboard. The head is constructed of Maple, with Rosewood friction pegs. The bridge, basically a tie block, is made of Cherry. The frets are traditional knotted gut, but the strings are a modern nylon set with metal wound strings used in the bass courses.

❌ SOLD ❌ Albert J Litto 7 Course Renaissance Lute, 1965

Here we have an Albert J Litto 7 Course Renaissance Lute, built during 1965 in Kenmore, New York.  This lovely Renaissance lute demonstrates many traditional construction techniques. The bowl back is composed of flamed maple ribs, bent and joined. Inside the bowl, the ribs are sealed with parchment tape, made wet to induce expansion, then coated with hide glue. The water on the inside forces the ribs to curve from side to side, and the hardening glue keeps them in this shape.
