Laud Julius Lüdemann (1880).
It was built in Germany in the late 1800s in a traditional way. This lute has a spruce top, the body is maple, and all the woods are solid.
It has a scale of 62.5 cm, the bridge pins are made of ebony and mother-of-pearl, the other two pins for the strap are also made of ebony.
It incorporates mechanical headstock without screws (riveted gears), probably originally the tuning machine was made of wood). All its pieces are original.
It has been fully restored and adjusted for proper operation and a comfortable performance.
The fretboard has been leveled and its frets have been reconditioned.
It is in an optimal state to play, with a comfortable action (1.5 mm at the 12th fret), without hum or fretting, and perfectly stable, working perfectly and tuning well on all frets.
It is strung with new 0.11 steel and silk strings.
The original shellac varnish has been cleaned and cleaned (especially fine on the lid), and a very thin layer of shellac has been applied to fix it and give it shine.
The parts of the tuners look like stone, specifically "tiger's eye" (semi-precious stone used in jewelry). The frets are made of nickel silver.
Although it has scratches, taps and small scratches, its general condition is very good. It has been totally revised and restored in everything necessary to ensure a good operation of the instrument for many years.
It is not usual to find these instruments in their original condition, with all its parts, and with such good performance.
