I’d like to officially introduce a new addition to the family: Herb Taylor custom bouzouki #262. She is a saucy dark lady of the night, and sounds and plays as well as she looks. She has been named “Ursula”.
- Redwood arch top
- Chechen (aka “Black Poisonwood”) back and sides
- Top sound hole
- Lower 2 courses octaves, upper 2 courses unison (dD-gG-aa-dd)
- Open headstock w/ locking Spertzel tuners
Herb is a world-class luthier based in Golden, CO (about an hour from my house), and he has built custom bouzoukis for some of the best players in the world. But he’s really outdone himself this time out! He helped me select the wood and features, and kept me posted throughout the build process. He has several splendid instruments looking for good homes – check ’em out here:
