  • Comments:The Irish Bouzouki came on the scene in the early 1970s when adopted by the great celtic players Andy Irvine and Donal Lunny. This "modern" version of the instrument makes for a very exiting and interesting pallet. This masterpiece Zouk by Josh House displays a level of detail and woods that take this instrument to a new stratosphere. The myrtle set is breathtaking, and yes, just when I thought I had seen it all, an exotic curly Sitka top...absolutely beautiful! While this is a "showpiece," it is a blast to play. The double string courses give you a nice "jangle" for single note phrases, and there is a cello-like richness to chords. I love the feel of the neck as well. It is comfortable and fast, and the set-up is perfect. If you are considering adding another flavor of stringed instrument sounds to your world, this would be a superb choice.
