    Re: My latest build: A medieval gittern

    As in which woods? I'd imagine any European hardwood suitable for carving. There aren't many surviving, but one surviving gittern made by Hans Oth in Nürnberg (Nuremberg) in what is today Germany in...

    Re: My latest build: A medieval gittern

    Thanks both! This is tuned in all fourths.

    I should add that they were historically carved out of a solid block of wood, but mine are constructed from ribs like a small lute.

    Re: This weeks mandolin that won't get a bid or buyer

    The 14-string guitar-shaped one is, I think, an octavina, a Philippine instrument played in Rondalla orchestras along with the Philippine 14-string bandurria (which they also have one for sale) and...

    Re: 'Mermaid' Charango

    A lot, maybe even the majority, are nowadays carved from solid wood, with some made with flat back and sides like a ukulele, or sides and a rounded back like a timple.

    Re: Who likes Ry Cooder?

    I do like Ry Cooder's music but had no idea he played mandolin!

    I loved the Buena Vista Social Club and some of his other callbos.

    Re: My latest oud, completed today :)

    The fingerboard length is normal for ouds - they meet the body at the fifth (i.e. where the 7th fret would be), which works out as a 3rd of the total scale length. This is helpful for orienting...

    Re: My latest oud, completed today :)

    58.5cm, so the same as Turkish, but this is otherwise an Arabic oud in style, mainly influenced by Syrian and Iranian models. (Syrian and Iranian ouds also frequently use 58.5cm)
