STOLEN: 8 course lute based on the Wendelin Tieffenbrucker

July 20, 2023


Dear Sir or Madam,

On Monday, July 19, I left my Renaissance lute in the luggage rack when I got off the train in Hanover. As I got off train left the station. Although the train ended there and then went into storage, my instrument has not yet been found. Now it must be assumed that someone stole the lute from the empty train on the platform.

I would like to ask for your assistance, and to inform me if you hear/see anything about a similar lute/if anyone has a similar lute for sale etc.

Information about the instrument: Light gray hardcase

8 course lute based on the Wendelin Tieffenbrucker (Vienna C.36) slightly scaled down
String length 590-620 mm
11 ribs of figured maple with black spacers
Neck, fingerboard and pegbox veneered with ebony
Luthier: Lars Jönsson

Attached are photos of my instrument.

I thank you very much for your help,
Yours sincerely,
Samyar Fazelzadeh
