Made in 1987. 59.5 cm scale. Flamed maple bowl. This has a remarkably small body for a ten course. It’s light as a feather and has the voice of an angel loud and clear and sweet! This is a professional quality instrument by a renowned maker. There is a tiny repaired separated seam just below the bridge – I tried to capture it in one of the pictures but only succeeded in displaying my crappy photography skills. It comes with a hard case.

George Stevens is recognised one of the world’s foremost lute builders and his instruments are used by the top professional concert artists.
His instruments are renowned for their beauty of tone and projection, playibility and impeccable craftsmanship.
Constructed with the finest materials. Perfectly balanced through all registers. A treasure of lutherie. Gorgeous and rare 11 rib cornish cherry back with cedar soundboard lending it an impeccable golden tone.

I am sorrowfully parting with this wonder of an instrument at this reduced price
The starting price for lute from George Stevens is 3900£ approx 5100 USD with a long waiting list. The low price is primarily to hasten an expedient sale. There is also a small indent/crack on the right side of the soundboard due to an accidental fall. By the grace of God it is right above a brace so not of any great danger to the instrument. Several luthiers have looked at the instrument and all have agreed to leave it as is, as it is of no consequential threat. It could be restored if the new owner so chooses.
String length: 61cm
Width at nut: 5cm
String spacing at bridge: 9cm
Currently strung with Aquila Nylgut.
Comes with hardcase.
Do not hesitate to ask further questions.

Available is an 8c renaissance lute built by Renzo Salvador in 2007. It is in excellent condition.
Vibrating string length 60cm, recently refretted with nylon.
This is a truly beautiful concert instrument with a clear, projecting tone. The care afforded to each tiny detail in its construction is stunning, and the checkerboard marquetry is especially unique and expertly made. It has a cypress soundboard and enchanting curly maple back. It is easy to play, and the sound produced is lovely.
The pegs are particularly well-formed – tuning this instrument is quite easy and proves stable over long periods of time.
Asking price: 4500 euros. Willing to hear offers.
The instrument is located in Groningen, the Netherlands.
A case is included, as well as several sets of strings and extra fretting material.
Additional photos, details, and sound samples are available upon request.
