Fan Fret Bouzouki

I’m rather pleased with this one - Jack Rutter is one third of Moore Moss Rutter,  winners of the young folk awards in 2011,  and is also multi-instrumentalist for Seth Lakeman.

I would call it a Cittern, Jack Calls it a Bouzouki, but he’s young and doesn’t know any better.
Macassar Ebony back and sides, 510 tuners.  Three pickups built in, that part was not much fun.  We had to sand my bloodstains off the inside.

He collected it late one Saturday, and within a few hours it was on stage with Seth at the Keswick Mountain Festival. Of course, Seth was playing his Fylde Bouzouki as well, but not at the same time as Jack.
