GUEST,Some bloke Bouzouki buying advice (6) RE: Bouzouki buying advice 08 Nov 16

I was in a similar position the other year. I ended up "dipping in the water" with s 100 Romanian unbranded one from The Music Room in Cleckheaton on the basis of not buying an expensive one till I see how much I use it. Then trade it in. I couldn't lose that much.

Here's the odd thing. I use it a lot and whether coincidence of manufacturing tolerances or well seasoned timber (solids, not laminates and at this price..) I am not yet minded to buy anything better just yet. I had a go on a few in the trade hall at Whitby festival but none were head and shoulder above it.

I ended up buying yet another ruddy guitar instead.

Don't dismiss cheapies. Laser cutting, controlled seasoning and quality glues mean most timber instruments at the cheap end are way better than a few years ago.
