Description

Everything of this Sape is in excellent condition except a broken string. Thus, will need new restringing. Apart, the top section of the sape is detachable.

origin Dayak Sarawak, Borneo.

History: The sape comes from the lute family. Thus, it is a musical instrument with the short neck. Therfore, it is made from meranti wood. Subsequently, it has quite an elongated body which is hollowed out and functions as a resonator. Thus, the shape of the body looks like a sampan / boat often called the boat lute in Western countries. Additionally, Kayan and Kenyah tribes are mainly seen playing such instruments in Sarawak, Borneo. Originally, sape strings were made from the Sago tree but now these have been replaced by guitar strings.
