For other uses, see Lute.

The Lute is an instrument used by bards, and can also be found in homes and inns. The lute as it appears in-game is a fretted, eight-string instrument. The pegs resemble those of many old instruments, including, but not limited to: lutes, cellos, and violins. A lute has a deep round back, in contrast to the similar named instrument found in Skyrim. The Skyrim instrument instead resembles the French lyre-guitar, possessing two horn-shaped struts that appear to be structural supports. These appear to be decorated to look like the head and neck of a dragon. The Dragonborn cannot use lutes, but the instruments can be put into their inventory. 

QuestsEdit

TriviaEdit
