Well, not quite lutes, but close relatives. I have in the shop now a six-string baglama and a four-string liuqin, which you could think of as a small pipa.

Both have decent frets—wooden pieces on the liuqin and tied fishing leader on the baglama.

Both are in need of proper bridge work for string height and intonation.

Photos will follow.
