Fylde Custom made guitar-shaped bouzouki

This bouzouki (or call it cittern) is for sale at ebay.

Look here:

The seller is from Spain. His description:

Fylde custom made guitar-shaped bouzouki-cittern. 5 course, 66 cm scale. Cutaway. Made on a Fylde Alchemist body with some upgrades: Englemann spruce top, Indian rosewood back and sides, neck: 5 piece laminated mahogany, walnut and ash, ebony bridge and fingerboard, with pearl position markers, gold gotoh tuners. Bindings: walnut, with marquetry purfling lines on front.

Includes a Hiscox Liteflite hard case and a Headway FEQ pick-up.

The instrument is in "as new" condition with the exception of a few plectrum marks as it's been played a bit. The sound is really open, with a huge sustain, and very balanced bass and ringigng trebles.

Unfortunately I don't like guitar shaped bouzoukis a lot.

Hi, my name is Jim Pettijohn. I have a couple Cittern and Bouzouki videos on my youtube if you'd care to add them to your blog.
