2004 New Hill 11 String Custom Maple

#2247

$6000 - SOLD

BACK to SHOWROOM

This beautiful maple 11 string model was conceived by Terry Schumacher, Lute Society of American to play the music of the renaissance lute, baroque lute or theorbo, giving a guitarist access to several hundred years worth of repertoire that resists being played on a 6 string guitar. We know guitarists who use 11 string guitar for contemporary music and for transcriptions which make use of the expanded range and the harp-like bass strings.

The body design is similar to our Munich model, and the neck is designed to kepp the instrument in balance. It fits in a standard guitar case. This unique instrument is good for expanding music study programs, giving students and professionals the opportunity to try out lute literature, without having to acquire a variety of instruments. Built in 2004 in our California shop.
