I have a 1996 Thirteen Course Baroque Lute made by, Australian Luthier, Ian Watchorn, for sale. It is a top professional instrument, after Martin Hoffman, with a beautiful tone. The top is an unique piece of Swiss Spruce called ‘Bear Claw’. The back is of Rosewood which was typical of Lutes around 1725. I am selling because I prefer to play the Renaissance Lute and Guitars. I would swap this instrument for a Baroque Guitar or Flamenco Guitar.
