14 String Filipino Banduria

On a trip to the Philippines, I went to Musar Music  in Baguio City. There I bought a 14 string banduria.




Here I am with Marcial.  He’s the guy that helped me with my purchase.




That’s a lot of strings!



Pretty wood on the back.



Here’s a little demo of it:

    The back is made out of mahogany. Shouldn’t you recycle all those strings when you go to restring it?

    I built an electric Filipino banjo Bandurria by reusing the neck that came from a badly damaged Bandurria. What exactly is the back made out of?

    Acacia wood, that’s is what the SG ukulele, & homemade pen are built out of. It’s going to take a very long time to get our electric 14 string Filipino bandurria up & running ’cause the plans we’re upgraded to a new level where that it also has a headphone jack.

    It’s similar in appearance to a 14 string Filipino Bandurria except it has a pickup & solid wood body with a headphone jack so you can practice w/ out disturbing others. Right Mr. Hulbert? Because you might want to install a soundboard pickup so you can plug into the amp. I wouldn’t electrify that instrument if I were you ’cause there’s a rule. “Don’t electrify instruments by disassembling them, installing the pickup & reassembling it unless they need repairs.
