Baglama Saz, Elec, Pro, Dark w Lines
This beautiful electronic saz has 5 metal strings laid out in 2 courses of 2 with a single string between them. Each string has a fine tuning knob at the base of the face. As expected the action is very low. There are 24 tied nylon frets and 6 tuning pegs, only 5 are used. The overall length is 42 inches. It has a 30.5 inch nut to bridge length. The body is 9 inches wide by 14.5 inches long by 9 inches deep. The body is stave construction with a rich colored stain under a high gloss finish. The bridge is unfinished. The hook-up, volume, bass and treble all have independent on-off switches. Soft zipper case included. String sets and plectrums are sold separately. Handmade in Turkey. The most frequently used tuning, from high to low pitch, is: A D G, where A is a 3-string course.*NOTE* Please expect the high gloss finish on the Turkish Saz to show dimples in the light. A perfectly smooth, unblemished, finish is nearly impossible to obtain with the technology employed in the Old-World finish process. These are handmade instruments and such dimples are common and unavoidable.
