... an instrument for Celtic and American folk styles ...

GUITAR BOUZOUKI, an eight stringed instrument, is a “cousin” to our mando-family of instruments (Octave Mandolons and Mandocellos), but built as a flattop.

This instrument, tuned as an Irish Bouzouki - a, D, A, D - is designed to sound closer to a classical Irish instrument but with a more powerful and colourful sound. The construction of this very unique instrument allows the use of octave mandolin tuning as well (g, D, A, E) – with paired or octave strings on g and D. This tuning can be successfully used for many Celtic and American folk styles.

 

This stock Guitar Bouzouki has nice all-body sunburst. Flamed Maple b&s and Bearclaw Spruce top design are emphased by Curly Mahogany body and fingerboard binding and well as convex rosette. Curly Mahogany is also used on our slim peghead together with black central strip. Rosette ring and top purfling are made from delicious three-color brown herringbone. Clear pickguard and Schaller mandolin tuners with white pearloroid knobs only keep its extraordinary look. And be sure when you’ll start to play, you’ll never want to stop …
