I bought the Buzuq from the same company as I bought this, Unosell. The finish was a bit lacking in the instrument, i.e. the gloss was uneven and it had scuffs, but the playability was great. And the sound was even better. I'm glad you've had success with the piezo/fuzz combo. I look forward to testing … I may post some clips ...

got the electric saz in! sounds great! I need to upload some clips but I was pleasantly surprised by how well it sounds with distortion. it uses a Fishman Presys + which is a piezo pickup with preamp and eq. But it sounded better through a distortion pedal to a solid state amp than it did straight into a distorted tube amp. The preamp, powered by a 9v battery, is LOUD! Again, I'll post some clips ...

Super excited that I'm going to have Araz, the tar player in this video at an upcoming show I'm putting together.

This thread is awesome. (That tar player sounds killer.) I have a Greek bouzouki and dink around on some rebetiko jams on it. This is the song I'm currently learning:

Cool song. I've got the Greek Bouzouki on my wishlist. I have a Buzuk and it is related to the G.Bouzouki. It has extra frets (beyond wsstern notes) and soundx like a deep mandolin. The tar sounds amazing but thosd are $$$

Another cool option is the cuatro, a Puerto Rican instrument:

Latin America has Tons of guitar-derived instruments, but I personally think the Ronroco is the king of LA « guitars » ... it has that bright woody sound that is perfect:

Btw, picked up the Russkie 7string by Doff ... I am a sick man:

What’s interesting about this is that it’s made to old 18th-19th century specs, which includes s bolt-on neck - so a 7 string bolt-on steel string classical guitar
