Description

This wonderful 5 course Forster Bouzouki was made for Aaron Jones of the award-winning Scottish Folk group Old Blind Dogs. If features Camatillo Rosewood topped with European Spruce. It has the typical big Bouzouki sound perfect for chordal work. But it also has a wonderful lead voice that is clear and present. Builder Nigel Forster's long tenure with Stefan Sobell has given him great insights into the Cittern family of instruments. This one comes complete with Gotoh tuners, K&K Pickup and a Calton flight case.

I've known Nigel Forster since his days with Stefan Sobells shop in England. He is passionate about music and his instruments. This Bouzouki is clear and strong and easy to play. Time to add one to your collection, it's easy to learn and a great voice to have available for many styles of music.
 
The ten-string bouzouki is a blast to play with the extra low course. I tuned this CGDAE so it is in the range of a cello at the low end giving the player a rich growling bass when needed.
