Medieval Cister 12-string

Price: €2800 incl. case

Our Medieval model in 12-string design. The tuning  is the same as on a 12-string guitar, either with octave strings or equal gauge on the string pairs. This allows every guitarist to get started with the usual guitar chords and it sounds like a bouzouki!

We have chosen an unusual combination of tone woods – sitka spruce top, quilted mahogany bottom and sides – which not only gives the instrument an unusual optic, but also produces a warm and lasting tone.
