    Default A new guitar bodied bouzouki

    This one got shipped off to the US today. 26" scale, carved Sitka soundboard, Indian rosewood back and sides, mahogany neck with two-way truss rod and ebony fingerboard. Gotoh tuners and Allen tailpiece. K&K twin element pickup. It sounds very nice, I think.

    Beautiful instrument, Graham. Very tastefully selected parts and woods, and I love those position markers.

    Lovely work, Graham! There are pictures above my workbench of a few inspirational instruments, one of which is a prototype mandolin for the “Quartet” you’ve mentioned. Any updates on that?

    Hello Clement and Monte,

    All well here and enjoying life making expensive sawdust. The quartets are getting closer. Hopefully starting the first couple in the next few weeks.

    Cheers
