Arciliuto forte in g

My Liuto Forte arciliuto in g is a fabulous instrument! It’s remarkably balanced in volume and clarity throughout its range. It has a clear yet warm lute tone, and mine is single-strung and very easy to play with typical classical guitarist’s nails. It’s also extremely versatile, and works well in typical g lute tuning or, with a change of three fretted strings, also in d minor tuning! The quality of construction is also of the highest order, and with the geared tuning pegs, Liuto Forte is absolutely a joy to play.
