EMS Heritage 8 Course Lute Kit with a semi rigid padded case

Usually ships in 24 hours.
Early Music Shop
Heritage Lute Kit - a  brand new range of lute kits available from The Early Music Shop based on the ever popular Hieber Lutes and designed by our own dedicated team of craftsmen. The kit builds into a light and responsive instrument with a shell made from thirteen lacewood ribs, separated by narrow inlay strips. A quality solid sitka spruce soundboard with laser cut rose, lacewood neck, peg box and rosewood fingerboard and pegs. Made to the same high specification as our finished lutes. Just follow the step by step comprehensive instruction manual complete with colour photographs and full scale drawing. An important design improvement is that the kit is supplied with a completely pre-assembled shell, which overcomes the frustrations that many kit builders found with our previous lute kits. Each part is carefully shaped ready for assembly, with only limited hand skills required. We now include a pre-cut rose to encourage those of you who are less adventurous! All parts are replaceable (should you need it) with the full back up service of our workshop. Each lute kit is supplied with a protective case which is included in the price. A complete set of Aquila Nylgut strings completes the kit. Vibrating string length = 600mm
