The Irish Bouzouki (sometimes called a cittern) is a unique form of an octave mandolin adopted into and adapted for Irish and other forms of European traditional music from the late 1960s onward. The most common tuning used is GDAD, but other tunings including GDAE, ADAD, and CFAD can be used. The Gold Tone BZ-500 Bouzouki is set up with octave strings for the third and fourth courses and unison strings for the first and second courses. This solid-top model produces dramatic traditional Irish tone and is easy to play thanks to the precision setup by the skilled luthiers at Gold Tone.

Features include a solid spruce top, mahogany back & sides, a mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard, an ebony bridge with an intonated bone saddle, a bone nut, a cast tailpiece and a set of sealed guitar-style tuning machines. Includes hardshell case.

I would buy another if I hadn't already bought one


This is a great sounding beautiful instrument that is incredibly fun to play. I have barely touched my guitars since purchasing it (about 7 months ago).
