I use two body sizes for my bouzoukis, each of which has that characteristic bouzouki sound.
The ZB is the same size as my OB Octave Mandolin and is a good all-round instrument. The ZX size body is much larger and is the same as the one I use for Mandocellos, so it's big!
They may be strung with unison strings on the bottom two courses or octave strings.
Bouzoukis can be built with 8 strings, the ZB8 or ZX8, tuned GDAD or similar. For 10 string bouzoukis I use the larger body, the ZX10, tuned DGDAD or similar.
Scale length 25.4"
