    Default Nyberb Bouzouki - Coming Soon!

    Lawrence Nyberg is currently building my new bouzouki and I just received word he is nearing completion! It'll have a carved Engelmann Spruce top, beautiful Koa back and sides, Mahogany neck with ebony fretboard, headplate and maple inlays for logo and top fret markers.

    Here's a few pics . . .

    Looks beautiful-can hardly wait to see and hear it in person. I snagged the flat top Nyberg that Lawrence put for sale here a few weeks ago. Amazing sustain, loud, comfortable to play. I really like the aesthetics-understated and elegant. Doesn't mean that I am not thinking about an archtop already!

    Best,
    Hugh

    That is cool. I'm on the wait list with Lawrence. He will be building me a mid-scale cittern to be finished early next year. Seeing the pictures of what your getting gets me excited.

    Can't wait to see more pictures

    The scale length is 24.25". My OM is 22.75" so it is not a huge stretch from that. I'm quite comfortable with it already - and lovin it! I'll post some audio soon so you can all have a listen.
