Archtop Cittern

The easiest definition of a Cittern would be a “ Bouzouki with extra strings”, but there are many variations in tuning and playing styles. We supply them tuned GDGDG, but I’m happy to discuss all the alternatives, and the consequences.

Saplele back and sides, Cedar top, Honduras Mahogany neck, Indian Rosewood fingerboard and bridge, chrome plated Gotoh tuners, Rosewood bindings, black and white purfling lines on front.
