A New Ancient Modern Traditional Oud

     We just go this in!  It's an electric Oud made by the Godin Guitar company up in Canada.  It's not too often you see something like this.  It's an 11 string Oud (5 double courses and one single course) with an on board pre-amp/eq/tuner. I don't really know how to play the Oud, but we have had one or two customers who know how and it sounds incredible!  The fretless fingerboard lets you get all the microtones that are essential in Eastern music.  
     We don't really stock anything electric (except a weird electric fiddle that no one will buy) but this thing is so cool that we had to get one in.
