Unfortunately, this cittern was damaged in shipment.  She was well packaged in a hard shell case and padding, but still the top was cave in.  This is the first instrument that I've ever had damaged during shipment.

I can guarantee that she will make a full recovery.  It will take time as the top need to be replaced.

In the mean time I am making the owner a new cittern.  The progress of the new one can be seen at www.kennaquhair.com/sn134 

Please check back to witness the recovery.
