This is a 10-string cittern in curly walnut with an Alaskan yellow cedar top, tuned GDAEA or GDADA. The short scale
(21") gives easy fingering and the tone is strong and pure. The body shape is modeled on the 18th century "English guitar" with two subtle points - however, the construction details are all modern with 2-way truss rod, smooth enclosed tuners, adjustable bolt-on neck and carbon fiber reinforcement at key points. Decoration includes gold hardware and lots of curly walnut. A stunning and versatile instrument.
