Description

Irish Bouzouki

Spec. Sheet:

A Double-top/Double-Back Irish Bouzouki - Smartmouth Mandolin by Dunwell

This is an X-braced Bouzouki in curly maple and Sitka Spruce. Outstanding curl in the Maple. Amazing volume and sustain, perfect for your Celtic session. Note that this is Double-Top and Double-Back but in an arched plate instrument. Only from Smartmouth Mandolin by Dunwell.

Normally this would be $3600.00 but I had some issues with the finishing and it is not my usual flawless finish, there are minor finish flaws, so that I don't feel right about asking full price. Therefore the reduced pricing. If you ever wanted to get a double plate instrument at a discount this is it.

Irish Bouzouki

Spec. Sheet:

A Double-top/Double-Back Deep Body Irish Bouzouki - Smartmouth Mandolin by Dunwell

This is an X-braced Bouzouki in curly maple and Sitka Spruce/Western Red Cedar. Outstanding curl in the Maple. Amazing volume and sustain, perfect for your Celtic session. Note that this is Double-Top and Double-Back but in an arched plate instrument. Only from Smartmouth Mandolin by Dunwell. The top has the face skin of Sitka and the inside skin of Western Red Cedar and the body is 1/4" deeper. This give is a bit more of a mellow sound with the bass side enhanced a bit.

This one has a three-point adjustable bolt on neck so "pitch and yaw" are completely adjustable from the soundhole.

Note the neck width, this one. While anyone can play it this is a particularly good one for someone with larger hands.

Double-Top OM in Indian Rosewood and Adirondack. Double-top guitars are a high-tech composite sandwich of "skins" of spruce with a core of Nomex (TM). The resultant top is very light weight and has tremendous projection. This particular instrument has the wonderful OM sound while being very even in tonal flavor throughout the fretboard. Includes Calton Deluxe case.

$5600.00

Spec. Sheet:

Double-Top Serenade in Indian Rosewood back and sides with Engelmann/Adirondack double-top. This box is a canon! Lots of reach and very sweet sounding for fingerstyle and voice accompaniment. It is well balanced and you don't have to pick harder or do anything special in the 5-7 fret range in order to reach the audience. Includes Calton case. The case does have some scuff marks from travel to shows so be aware of that.

$5600.00

Spec. Sheet:

This is a 0-parlour sized guitar with a deep body in American Black Walnut and Western Red Cedar. This is a great combination as Walnut can sometimes be a bit bright like a very lively Mahogany and the Cedar mellows that a bit.The walnut wood it is very high figure and the overall tone is to die for. A wonderful finger style or accompaniment instrument.

$4200.00

 

Spec. Sheet:

Double-Top-Double-Back Minstrel in Adirondack Spruce and American Black Walnut with a sound port. Having a rich voice with great projection this is a do-anything box. The walnut topped with the Adirondack makes for fine note separation. It loves the pick but handles fingerstyle with ease.
