Quotes from Paul Hathway's website.......

http://www.paulhathway.com/12-string-cittern/

"All my instruments are made with the practical musician in mind, using the best quality wood, never laminates or plywood. Most instruments have mahogany neck, back and sides, these are then stained to a dark wood finish. Soundboards are spruce or re dwood cedar and occasionally mahogany. Fingerboards, headstock, and bridges are made of rosewood. All machine heads are best quality enclosed type and are made by Ghoto.

"Model 1 Plain this model and has no edge banding to the body, which gives the look of a traditional folk instrument. ( Model M-1 OM-1 B-1 etc. )

C-1-12 - 12-String Cittern or Octave Guitar - Scale Length 360mm. String Gauges used .048w .038w .028w .018p .014p .010p
The strings are tuned E A D G B E
This Cittern has the same tuning as a guitar, but one octave higher."
Condition
The Cittern/Octave Guitar is in "As New" condition....I can't really find any significant marks on it.

Action, strings & cases
The instrument has excellent 12th fret action between 1.75mm & 2.25mm.

Existing strings appear to be 10-48 gauge, as per the maker's recommendation, and I will leave it as strung for the buyer to fit their preferred choice of strings (in the case there is a part set of Newtone strings....near, but not quite the same gauges specified by the maker).


As above details to be added. The substantial & excellently fitting "Viking" hard case, with key, shown in photos, is included.
