Full image caption

Seventeenth century English guitar in lute shape. This English guitar has a 17th century body and neck, and scroll of about 1750, stamped with the name of the maker, F. HINTZ. The neck and scroll are those ordinarily proper to a cithern or mandora, but tenor and bass mandoras were contrived in the 18th century by re-necking the bodies of older lutes, which is what seems to have happened here. This is a wooden lute with a metal ornament around the hole, it has a black wood neck.
