❌ 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.
