The Bouzouki Book: A Workshop Guide to Building Irish Bouzoukis and Citterns (Paperback)
A workshop guide to building Irish bouzoukis and citterns. In the past forty years bouzoukis, citterns and octave mandolins have become an essential part of acoustic music. The Bouzouki Book is the first, and only, book to guides the reader through the steps to build one of these fascinating stringed musical instruments. The book includes nearly 200 colour and B&W illustrations as well as plans for all major components.
Graham McDonald has been building mandolins, bouzoukis and other stringed instruments for over 25 years, and has published The Bouzouki Book, on building Irish bouzoukis and citterns and The Mandolin Project, a manual for building four styles of mandolin. He lives in Canberra, Australia.
