Here is an exquisite baroque guitar by noted lute maker Michael Sprake in London, 1974. A copy of an extant Voboam in the Smithsonian, this five-course guitar features a spruce top over a sycamore back and sides, all centered around an intricate, pear-and-parchment rose. There is a small repaired crack in the face below the mustache bridge; the guitar is in otherwise excellent condition.
Along with a custom coffin case, also included are detailed plans drawn by Sprake as well as a typed spec sheet with a full run down of materials. An impossibly lightweight, airy instrument that will captivate Early Music aficianados and professionals alike.
