Alto Lute

This set of plans was inspired the 1581 Georg Gerle (Innsbruck). It's my own basic student lute, ideal both for beginning players and makers alike.

The plan contains information to built both 6- and 7-course variants. As well as 3 different rosette designs.

The first sheet is a plan of the instrument, while the second sheet can be used as a template for the inner mould.

I've based this lute on the "Venetian Inch" as proposed by Robert Lundberg in his book "Historical Lute Construction".

The lute has a string length of 59 cm.

This plan has two sheets: one plan, the other templates for making the mould.
