Number 225

This is a short scale (20") cittern in maple with western red cedar top. It's strung with d'Addario flat-wound bronze mandolin strings (EF-76) tuned GDADA, giving a smooth powerful sound with clean attack. The open head stock is fitted with Sperzel trim-lok tuners for easy stringing in the confined space. A cast bronze Allen tailpiece accepts either loop end or ball end strings. A versatile instrument for melody or accompaniment, with all my usual construction features.

Price: $3700
