A recent addition to the mandolin family, the bouzouki used in Celtic music is different to the familiar Greek version in that it has a flat back and is tuned similar to the octave mandolin/mandola.

The bouzouki has a longer string length, which allows for lighter stringing and makes it ideal for rhythm and accompaniment.
 * A D A D
 * G D A D

Normally strung in pairs but 3rd and 4th courses can be supplied tuned in octaves similar to a 12 string guitar.
The bouzouki is also an ideal 2nd instrument for the acoustic guitarist looking for something different in terms of tuning, sound and chord voicing.
* 24 frets /640mm scale
* Width at nut: 37mm
* Strings : .042 .032 .017 .012

An 8 string instrument, which responds well to the following tunings:
* G D A E
* A D A E

Moon Guitars was established by Jimmy Moon in 1979 in a small workshop on the Island of Arran, off the west coast of Scotland.

Combining his engineering skills and love of music, Jimmy first began producing dulcimers, progressing quickly on to acoustic guitars. His reputation as a fine craftsman soon flourished, and with the help of his musician brother, Brendan, he was soon making and repairing instruments for many of Scotland's best musicians.
