The G series is our version of the traditional 8-string bouzouki. We gave it the name "Gazouki" because it's built like a guitar but tuned and played like a bouzouki. The shape was developed after Dermot's mentor, Mickey Uchida, told him that a natural pear shape should be the beginning of any instruments design but then moulded out to suit both the instrument and player. Dermot decided to keep the pear shape unaltered.
Scale length is 648mm.
Nut width is 34mm but 32mm-38mm is possible on request.
The Gazouki is available is any wood combination
