    They 'look' nice, kind of like a Abnett on a budget.

    Cheers

    Funny. They list the wrong tuning. I am sure they mean well...

    I had an irish bouzouki by Musikalia and sold it just after 4 months. It had no truss rod and I got problems to adjust the action. The sound was pretty "cheap". But the finish was pretty nice and it was definitely made by hand.
    All in all: I cannot recommend this brand.

    BTW, what is the easiest Zouk tuning to learn? I play EADG on the OM & mandolin and ADGC on the 'dola. Haven't played any other tuning to date.

    i palyer a few at hobgoblin in london,uk, and it wasn't very good sounding. a trinity college is better, and i don't like trinity college instruments much. trinity's are going cheap on ebay right now, they are a good starter instrument.

    I still own a Musikalia OM and played a few at hobgoblin at Leed, Manchester and at the Music Room nearby 3 years ago..... not great but handmade and with good volume and tone too, no truss rod....Dr. Alfio Leone made a series of models with his artisans at Calabria.... some of them are really pretty.... check musikalia.it
