Finn's Lute, a Bethesda joke?
I've noticed in previous Bethesda games, that they like to include odd little items that have no use. In Skyrim, it seems to be charcoal. I also have Finn's Lute, which I'm not allowed to sell or store as it's a quest item. However, I have no relevant quest in my journal. So, is this another of their little jokes? :)

There is a quest regarding this lute.

Not a joke. Take a walk around Solitude to find the answers.

Both Finn's Lute and charcoal have uses.

Finn's lute is used in the bard collage quest.
Charcoal is used in one of the higher end (I think) thieve's guild quests.

A bard will want it. Same with a drum I think..

Yeah, I know that one mpd. The lute says, 'what are we doing here?' and the drum says 'beats me' :)

Once again, the excellence of the Skyrim community shines thru! Thanx all, I'm due to visit Solitude soon, so I look forward to finding out. I will keep storing the charcoal then. :)

No, you're all right gnewna, unless you're feeling cold. :)

LOL, great punch line. I couldn't think of one at the time, so I just left as is.

Thanx mpd1958. :)

Finns Lute is bugged not sure if it is fixed. Perhaps in some Unofficial Patch.

Thanx Uncle. I will find out very soon, as I'm off to Solitude now. Fortunately I'm going to see a man about an outfit challenging some arrogant snob of a demented capitalist b***h who operates out of Riften, so it won't be an entirely wasted journey. :)
On the matter of bugs, I've got quite a few minor but irritating bugs in my copy. Like Lydia running on the spot, items disappearing and reappearing, and most recently, blocks of varying shapes and colours appearing on the horizon. I suspect the latter may be down to my GPU, but I'd like to know if anyone else gets these glitches.

Finn's Lute is an item you have to find for one of the professors in the Bard's College. As for the bug which causes the items to still remain in your inventory, I found a mod on the Workshop to solve this problem. I don't remember its name, but try typing Bard's College into the Workshop searchbar; that should lead you to the mod.
