Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I bought one of these lutes last year. It was unplayable as delivered, and after a year of trying different strings and tunings, it is still unplayable--a waste of money. I have gotten no help from Andreas. They were evasive on the phone regarding a new set of strings. I am very familiar with baroque lutes, having had one built by Richard Brune. This instrument is a piece of garbage. Beware of wasting your money.
