Imported from Turkey. The cura is the smallest of the saz family with the highest pitch. It has a small body and short finger board. 

Please Note: Wood coloring and decorations may vary from the photograph. Please expect the high gloss finish on the Turkish Saz to show dimples in the light. A perfectly smooth, unblemished, finish is nearly impossible to obtain with the technology employed in the Old-World finish process. These are handmade and such dimples are common and unavoidable.
