Can someond tell me the name of the musical instrument played in this ad ?
In one version the guy is standing on a branch over a lake.

Some kind of lute? But the neck looks too long.

After some more Googling I have decided it's a long necked mandolin.
I could be wrong though tchgrin

It is called a Theorbo, a lute with extended neck to accomodate open bass strings smile
