World class Canadian luthier Grant Tomlinson has collected his lifetime of research materials, photos and data sheets, and has offered them to the LSA via our website. Containing detailed information on over 70 historical lutes in European museums and private collections, these materials are now available for access via the link below. After many years of work (4+ years) assembling Grant’s invaluable data and photos, we have gathered them into a convenient and accessible format and are very excited to make them available to everyone. We hope that this website serves as a fertile source of information for luthiers, both young and old, to pursue the art and fine craft of lute building!
