John of the Hill Help: bouzouki/octave mandolin (18) RE: Help: bouzouki/octave mandolin 05 Dec 99

Jon, I think a big part of the confusion arises from the fact that this is a group of instruments that range as widely as from a travel guitar to a jumbo 12 string, but with no agreed upon terminology. For example what is usuallly called an octave mandolin in the States is usually called an octave mandola in Europe. I am ordering what I consider to be a long scaled cittern, but the builder defines as a 10-string bouzouki. Makes it great fun! John
