All of the qualities and features you would ever want from any instrument and here it is. As with all of James' handcrafted instruments they all boast superb warm tone along with astonishing resonance and with his bouzoukis, there is no difference. The unique yet recognisable sound of a James Martin instrument is also brought to life in his bouzoukis'. This can only be from the time and pure love and joy of his craft that he puts into each and every instrument from the very start to the very end and even after that!
Each and every one is handmade and intricately tap tuned to be at it's best tone so no customer is left disappointed. The fine, smooth hand carved neck makes for fast playing up and down the neck. The specs and price for this specific bouzouki are stated below. Our standard handmade bouzouki start at €2300 but you can create your very own instrument how you wish and we will price it accordingly. Just send us an email with all the information on what you would like and we can give you a quote. Alternatively you can checkout our "Pricelist" page for full list and prices of alternative woods and customisations. Any customisations can be made to any of our instruments as well as the option to have a pick-up installed. And, we do provide fully insured worldwide shipping.
