You could also look at a lute guitar. They have the bowl back like a lute but have six standard strings like a guitar. You could find a nice one for $500.

I have an 8 course lute and I find it difficult to learn how to play it. So much so that I bought a 10 string classical guitar to replace it. I am still going to learn how to play the lute as it is very well made and sounds nice. It is a custom made instrument by Dan Lankford in the states. It cost around $2000 but it was worth it to me. Here is a link to his website and the lute that I bought from him through that auction site.
