The lute refers to both any plucked string instrument with a fretted neck and a deep round back as well as specifically an instrument from the family of European lutes. Lute and oud both descend from a ommon ancestor, with diverging evolutionary paths.

And it is played a lot at Renaissance faires.
Queen Elizabeth I is portrayed as playing a lute.

lute is used in place of almost every word. It can mean anything that the user wants it to mean. Usually is used as a compliment, but can become a slam if used properly.
"Wow, that shirt is totally lute!" (in this case it can be seen as either)
person 1, "I just aced my bio midterm!"
person 2, "Nice dude, tottally lute!"
(here it is used as a compliment)

Person 1, "Your a loser!"
person 2, "oh yeah, well your tottally unlute!"
(here it is a slam)
these are bad examples, but i think you get the general idea.

Short for absolutely. It's like saying "totes"
Sven: You gonna be around for drinks after work?
Dude: Lutes dude.
