Big pear shaped body, oval sound-hole, flat back and gloss natural finish. This Cittern model has a 650mm scale and a big warm sound. It also comes complete with gig bag.

The Cittern used by today's folk-bands has its ancestors in the renaissance Citterns and the English Guitar, but it is now more closely related to the flat-back Bouzouki - the main difference being that the Cittern has 10 strings in 5 courses, a slightly shorter neck and often a rather larger body. There doesn't seem to be a standard tuning, ADADA, ADGAD, and DGDAD are in common use.
