  • Description


This is a very compact 5 string Gourdie that packs a lot of sound for a small gourd. Canteen Style Gourd 8 1/2″ dia x 4″ with soundport. I was a little surprised at how much sound was coming out, but hey, it’s a Gourdie.
A  couple of special features…the nut 34mm wide is made from reconstituted coral and the is a tiny woodburned rocket on the underside of the heel.
