GiuZouk : Creation of the mold

A step by step journey started to unfold !

The luthier,  KonstantinTsopelas, sent me today the first photographs  from the initialization of GiuZouk’s construction, and the creation  of its mold.

The luthier has finally received from overseas, the very old Sitka Spruce wood-carrying bear-claw -(which will be used for the creation of soundboard),  and the West  Coast  claro black walnut wood (which will be used for the construction of its body).

Stay tuned as the creation of this unique Erivan kithara-bouzouki will unfold  step by step, picture by picture, heart beat by heart beat together with the luthier's inspiration, in this mystical rite between man and old woods!
