My design after Tieffenbrucker 72/77.5cm eb'/e'A440
13/37 ribs Model T
A large bass rider style Baroque lute, with a body modelled on the
Bardini Tieffenbrucker. The full body shape, with large soundboard area
and body volume, makes for a powerful bass response for this lute type
The body can be made with 17 ribs of yew or maple, or 37 of yew. It has
a cambered fingerboard and treble rider, and the bass rider can be made
in several styles.
