Lavta, Fancy, with Soft Case (Item Code: LAUT-SF) The Lavta was popular in the an early 20th century among Greek and Armenian players. The lavta has a body made of solid wood staves, a guitar-like neck with tied movable nylon frets, a ‘mustached’ bridge and inlayed rosette. The pegbox is at a sharp angle to the neck, like the oud. The tuning pegs are violin style friction pegs. The Lavta is sometimes called a Laouta (ending in a ) but not a Laouto (ending in o ) which is a different instrument.

Roosebeck Lute-Guitar, Steel, Rosewood, Gears, Dbl Mid-East Lavta, Fancy, with Soft Case
List Price: $699.00
Our Price: $559.20
Our Price: $479.00
The double bowl guitar is an attractive and lightweight instrument of a similar size and scale to a standard classical guitar but with a body like a lute, with a twist. The double bowl-shaped body is achieved by edge-gluing together staves of uniformly thin hardwoods bent to a specific shape with no heavy internal bracing to retain its form. The bowl is made of sheesham rosewood (Dalbergia sissoo) that affords a warm, mellow tone.

European spruce is used for the soundboard and, in keeping with the design of 16th-Century lutes, its soundhole is a carved rosette in an attractive geometric pattern which is cut into the soundboard itself and is not inlaid of different material. Most exciting is that the soundboard bracing pattern follows bracing used in world-famous Kohno classical guitars.

The mahogany neck has a shape is similar to a classical guitar with a 51mm (2 inch) wide nut of ebony. The top of the peg box has a woman's head carved on the top. Using standard steel classical guitar strings, it is tuned like a guitar in e, b, G, D, A, E tuning. If it is to be used for lute music, the 3rd string may be tuned a semi-tone down to F# to enable lute fingering. The guitar is outfitted with smooth-operating gold tuners with black ebonized tuning key buttons.

The overall length is 40 �" and the scale length is 25 3/8", similar to a normal guitar. The instrument has a satin lacquer finish.
