irish bouzouki

 

The irish bouzouki was developed from the greek original in the 1960’s and is a very popular instrument in celtic and folk music.
I build my own version, using the traditional shape as a starting point. I also build bouzoukis in parlour guitar shape; these have a less ‘boxy’ sound and are more comfortable when played sitting rather than standing.
