Flat back. A comfortable model to play, with a rich sound.
Pitch: e, String length: 66 cm
Vaulted multirib back of 25 individually scalloped ribs. The original has a floral design instead of the geometrical inlay as shown. The tone is pleasantly mellow, yet the rounded back effectively directs the sound towards the audience.
Pitch: e or d#, String length: 70-72 cm
Own design based on the Giorgio Sellas body shape. Metal strings and metal frets. I recommend Pegheds mechanical tuners (as pictured) to make tuning easier.
Pitch: e, String length: 62 cm
Based on the body shape of Belchior Dias from 1581. Can be made with four or five courses, tuned in a' with a string length of 52-54cm. Also available with curved and deeply fluted ribs as the original, or with a curved back.
Pitch: a, String length: 54 cm
