The Turquoise oud


Hello all. I am selling an oud that I finished this week. I can't continue to make ouds and keep my work as I can't afford my own work.

I dubbed this project The 'Turquoise' because I came up with the idea of using turquoise as part of the ornamentation. In this oud, the bridge and the pegbox cap has it.

Please wait a few days for video. I'm waiting for the strings to settle.

E-mail me for price or any questions (bulerias81@gmail)
Try not to send me any U2U as my inbox is always full

Measurements:
Scale = 600
Face width = 348
Face length = 502
Bowl depth = 190
Asfour main rosette = 111
Asfour small rosettes = 40 x2

Bowl from Turkish walnut
Neck has spruce core with walnut veneer
Ebony pegs
Ebony fingerboard
Wide grain spruce top
Peg box is from walnut and flamed maple
Pick guard from walnut
Bone nut
Walnut bridge
Turquoise and bone cap on bridge
Turquoise cap on peg box
Binding edge tiles from walnut and boxwood
Finished with tru-oil synthetic varnish

Beautiful. Good traditional color combo turquoise & burnt sienna, like lapis and gold. Would love to see more turquoise to tie it together, maybe around the rosette in place of that light material?

And i though i had already posted and was hallucinating .. nating ... nating

so I had a chance to see and hear and play this AMAZING oud last night. i wish i could put it to words to all of you but i am afraid my english isn't good enough. simply FLAWLESS. John really took this one home.
very clean craftmanship and beautiful arabic sound.....without much dealy here is a sound sample of Zikrayat by Mohamed el Qasabji played by John Vergara and his girlfriend on the violin.
ENJOOOOOY!!! :buttrock::buttrock::buttrock::airguitar::airguitar::airguitar:
