Just before the great celebration of Christmas day, I finally took the decision to order a new trixordo (3 course) bouzouki, by the hands of Giannis Tsoulogiannis.

The greatly anticipated oriental tzouras will have to wait a little longer, as the thirst for the sweet pre-war sound of the old rebetika has been finally defined, as my next goal .

The above images illustrate the process of my first attempt, designing a new trichordo bouzouki, based on shape and dimensions of an existing mulberry 3 course bouzouki, created by the same luthier.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
