The Irish Bouzouki is a unique type of octave mandolin adopted into Irish and other traditional musics since the late 1960s. The most common tuning used is GDAD, but other tunings including GDAE, ADAD, and CFAD can be used.  The BZ-500 zouk 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 Gold Tone's skilled luthiers. Includes hardshell case.
