Mid-East Fancy Lavta with Gig Bag

The lavta, although similar in looks to the oud or lute with its deep bowled back and teardrop face, this instrument is unique to the Greek and Armenian players who made it popular in the early 20th century. This lavta features tied movable nylon frets on the fingerboard. The peg box is at a sharp angle to the neck with friction pegs much like those on a violin. A "mustashed" bridge is a prominate feature on the face of the instrument with beautifully inlayed rosette. Played with a pick like an oud, mandolin or lute, the warm, rich tones speak easily from this unique stringed instrument of the Middle East.
