Ian HP Where can I buy a lute (England)? (11) Where can I buy a lute (England)? 18 Nov 01

Where can I buy a decent lute in England? I do some Mediaeval material so I'd like to use something approaching the right instrument, but I'm having trouble tracking one down. Here's who I've tried: Northern Renaissance in Manchester who can't offer lutes as their maker is ill; Early Music Shop, Bradford, who have about a dozen lutes, all unplayable due to poor maintenance (so I made a 300 mile round trip for nothing!!!) and this w/e I'm going to Hobgoblin in London, who have only two. Where can I try? Please help.
