Interesting stuff, Mandotim. Yes, I've seen octaves in many shapes and sizes. The main difference between them and SK's mandocello seems to be the width of the neck. My own Hathway octave (now sold) had a fairly narrow neck. Scale length on octaves also seems to be a matter of maker's preference. Citterns are a complete free-for-all as to size, shape and tuning.
