The neck has a core of beechwood which has been overlaid with alternating strips of padauk and sapele veneer to match the body. The peg box is outfitted with 11 olivewood pegs and a bone nut. The fingerboard is unfinished sapele with a border of holly and ebony lines with a scale length of 580mm. Includes soft case and pick.

SPECIAL NOTE: No Warranty on Strings.


On occasion instruments may arrive with a broken string, therefore, it is recommended that you purchase a replacement set of strings and consider changing your strings as soon as it arrives. We recommend the LaBella OU80 String Set. If you want to tune this shorter scale Turkish Oud in the Arabic style (D, G, A, D, G, C), we recommend the D'Addario J95 Oud string set.


NOTE: We do not recommend tuning the J95 oud string set in the Turkish style.
