As a collector and performer of traditional music was the Greek bouzouki has long been on my list. When considering to opt for this model, I let myself be guided by the beautiful design and afwerkging as shown on the product pictures on the website (what you see is what you get).

The instrument is fully in line with expectations. Beautifully finished top with beautiful inlay. The back of the enclosure sublime finished with 60 strips of walnut and subtle embellishments. The instrument is also extremely light and delicate to handle.
The fretboard is graceful processed to detect any error or impurity.

The sound is sublime! Beautiful bright yet warm tone, the real Greek sound.

The instrument has a comfortable low action, pure tone all strings in all positions. For now, the instrument remains in voice (vote sent)

Perhaps in the product description may also be referred to as the size of the instrument, in addition to the scale length (length 98 ', width 30 cm, depth 18 cm). Thus, the information is complete and helps confirm the carrying case fits in.

Happy with this choice, it is the relatively higher price worthwhile. Simply a super bouzouki!

Use as an amateur, in a room dedicated to music and sometimes electrified on a Marshall acoustic amp.
This Bouzouki is beautiful, beautifully decorated, the handle is fluid not too thick, the action is low which allows a certain dexterity, it has marks on the blank that allow to sit on the sleeve. The body of the Bouzouki is quite bulky it produces beautiful bass, but in case of overweight it is necessary to consider a diet ;-) Mechanics are fairly accurate and overall it holds well the agreement. I am satisfied with the sound and hope for an improvement in the times of my 4 stars.
