Lutes for Sale, Lutes Wanted, and Stolen Lutes

Lutes for Sale

Here are some lutes for sale. I am posting this as a service, and I can not make any recommendations, as I have never seen these instruments nor met the sellers. They are listed with the most recent contributions on the top. Please reply to the sellers directly, and not to me. If you buy or sell one of these lutes, please notify me so I can take it off the list! If you are looking at instruments to buy be aware that people don't always tell me when they sell their instrument. If the instrument has been listed for over a year there is a 50 percent chance that it is sold. If you want me to post your instrument to sell please read this

If this service has made you happy, please consider making a donation to my lute string fund!

Note - Aug 2008, I just got the first advertisement from a "Nigerian" trying to sell a guitar. In March 2017 some fishy looking ads were submitted to me with pictures apparently taken from eBay. use Google image search to see if the pictures you are looking at are right. Or look to see if the same instrument is on eBay by another seller.

Now there is an RSS feed for this page -

Lutes Wanted

(be sure to read about lute scams as people are now pretending to sell instruments too!)

How to post an ad

Warning! the Nigerian Fraud has hit the lute world!

Criminals from Nigeria are contacting people who advertise on this list, asking to buy a lute with a check for thousands of dollars over the price of the lute and have the seller wire the remaining money to Nigeria. Don't do it - the check will be forged and will bounce - this is a way to steal your money! They all seem to know about this "Lutes for Sale" list and they will contact you. See and see and see You may want to get yourself a temporary email address to use just for selling your lute, so that your regular email is not filled with messages from people running this scam.

Here are some signs of fraud:
